Ideals Linked With Deeds . . . 

Scholarship Awarded to Vivian Burgess 

Last year the Mount's Interracial 
Committee aimed at raising funds for a 
scholarship to promote better interracial 
and intercultural understanding. Led by 
Chairman Marianne DcCoursey, the 
group sponsored activities and solicited 
donations, hoping to be able to give a 
full tuition scholarship. That goal was 
not reached, but it was possible for the 
committee to offer a fees and incidentals 

Last year Vivian Burgess was a se- 
nior at Catholic Girls' High School. Quiet 
and reserved, Vivian was nevertheless 
outstanding as a leader in school activ- 
ities and in particular in Legion of Mary 
work. She hoped to attend Mount St. 
Mary's after graduation. 

This year the Interracial Committee's 

ilarship has been given to a student 

whose personality and qualities of lead- 

ip will enable her to use it for the 

best possible purposes. 

This year Vivian Burgess is a fresh- 
man at Mount St. Mary's College. 

New freshman, Vivian Burgess, is intro- 
duced to the student body by Alice 
Kraemer, student body secretary. 


Eight girls from the Mount entered the convent this month, six of them becom- 
ing postulants of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. In the group were Dorothy 
O'Callaghan, a graduate of 1947; Barbara Gunning, senior chemistry major; Barbara 
Sanborn, junior liberal arts enthusiast; and three sophomores, Theresa Van Horn 
Jo Anne Larkin, and Barbara Dugan. 

Sue Blatz, second vice-president of the 
freshman class last year, entered the 
Dominican Order at Mission San Jose. 
Another member of last year's freshman 
class, Delores Rashford, has joined the 
Holy Name Sisters. 

Two Mount students boast sisters who 
have also entered the convent. Gloria 
Padilla's sister Margaret left for Burlin- 
game to become a Sister of Mercy, and 
Arleen Brady's sister Joan became a 
Dominican Comtemplative. 

On August 15, seven former Mount 
students received the habit of the Sisters 
of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Mary Jean 
Reese's religious name will be Sister 
Catherine Mary; Esperanza Vasquez is 

Sister Maria Magdalena; Annette Wahoff 
is Sister Mary Annette; Carolyn Ramsay 
is Sister Mary Madonna; Mary Theresa 
Roise is Sister Therese Celeste; Cynthia 
Bashe is Sister Joseph Mary; and Shirley 
Aurich is Sister Mary Christopher. 

Acclaims Sunsets 

Mary Joann Lindenfeld, last year's edi- 
tor of The View and student body vice- 
president this year, spent an interesting 
.slimmer combining work and pleasure as 
a reporter for The Tidings. In the latter 
part of August she was sent to a work- 
shop of College Administrators held at 
Loretto Heights College in Denver, Colo. 
The main topic of the meeting centered 
on the curriculum in Catholic women's 
colleges. Representatives from many 
Catholic colleges in the nation were 

Although a lone traveler to Colorado, 
Mary Joann nevertheless enjoyed the 
trip, reporting and sight-seeing at the 
same time. She had many interesting 
places and things to talk about, acclaim- 
ing especially the magnificent view of 
the sunset behind the Rockies. 

While in Denver, Mary Joann also at- 
tended Father Loi ,ier School of 
Catholic Action, which she found enlight- 
l and educational.

On June 29, 1948, the Queen Mary docked at Southhampton, England. Among 
the passengers to be initiated into the ordeals of customs inspection and unfamiliar 
environs was Azilda Charbonneau, a member of Mount St. Mary's senior class. 

The following morning brought Azilda's introduction to London, with its well- 
organized subway system to the crowded buildings and Big Ben. She heard Mass 
in the Westminister Cathedral and saw 
ancient instruments of torture displayed 
in the Tower of London. The result of a 
visit to Westminister Abbey was a note 
in her diary on the carved pinnacles of 
the chapel built by Henry VIII and on 
the color captured in the stained glass 
windows of the Abbey. 

Another day was passed at Oxford, 
which violates the traditional ideas of a 
university campus. The Gothic college 
buildings and dormitories are scattered 
throughout the town. The whole is dotted 
with window boxes of red geraniums. 

In the National Gallery, Azilda out- 
lined her impressions of the paintings of 
masters such as Rafael and Titian. From 
there she drove through the soft green 
countryside to the Keswick of the Lake 
Region poets. 

Ireland came next, and while Azilda 
travelled the Killarney countryside in a 
jaunting cart, she was entertained by the 
hospitable Irish who related tales of the 
lakes and overgrown ruins of decayed 

Six days in Paris meant a shopping 
trip, a performance of the Paris opera, 
Versailles, and Fountainbleau. The build- 
ings of Versailles, which were designed 
for outdoor living, were in disrepair, but 
the forests, gardens, pools, and fountains 
were beautiful and unfaded. 

To culminate her first European tour, 
on .September 5 Azilda heard the Holy 
Father speak at a Catholic Youth Forum 
and received his blessings in the doorway 
of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. 



Big and Little Sisters 
Meet Before School Opens 

Big and little sisters got together at 
Mary Alice Ott's home four days before 
school began officially. 

Barbara O'Callaghan with her little 
Mary Anne Quinn; Mary Clare 
O'Brien and Eva Artukovich, Gloria Put- 
man and Lea O'Donnell, Mary Krug and 
Jackie Nolan, Mary Ellen Likins and 
sophomore Phyllis Tukich exchanged 
news about St. Mary's, Immaculate 
Heart, Compton, and the Mount. 

The Mount's NSA delegate Gloria Pa- 
dilla returned from Madison, Wisconsin, 
enthusiastic about the national conven- 
tion of NSA, impressed with her trip to 
the East, and confident that the Ameri- 
can roil," , tudents have an upper hand

Delegates from all parts of the country 
met for a five day session August 23-28 
in sweltering heat at the University of 
Wisconsin. Tl aggregation 

displayed uny spirit with a distri- 

bution of genuine California-grown 
oranges and an array of comfortable loud 
shirts and beach wear. 

Noteworthy were the results in both 
national and regional elections. Bob Har- 
ris, a Catholic, was elected national pres- 
ident of NSA. Helen Jean Rogers of 
Mundelein College was made secretary 
and Dick Heggie from the University of

A New Student Speaks . . . 

Friendly Mount Spirit Brings Thanks 

by Gloria Nitrini 

I am a new student at Mount Saint 
Mary's College, but what I have to say 
isn't only for new students. It's for ev- 
me who at one time or another made 
the decision to follow the winding road 
to the Mount. 

Sure. I was nervous and uncertain the 

first day. I would have been abnormal if 

eren't. I expected to feel very much 

alone and very much neglected. But, let 

:i you about my first day. 

I i ear with my heart pound- 

iomewhere near my throat. Then. I 

tried to walk casually over to the line in 

.,i SI J i lull, but I wasn't 

i my knees would stay with me. 

re familial- but smiles were 


1 relaxed a littk a very little. 

Then bo iduced herself as 

;ie Frye. I felt betl ir; someone had 
:ed i was lonelj ithers be- 

i he line movei like 

•lilla, Marianne DeCoursey, Car- 
ol Gallagher, uid Mary Anne Becker. 

< owls, iii Triplicate 

Sunn someone handed me innumerable 
little important-looking cards and be- 
wildered, 1 asked some intelligent looking 
help. I got first class assistance 
Dede I fills and Pat Campbell. This 
iderful. Then when so many peo- 
ple asked me whether I was getting 
along all right and seemed so sincerely 
concerned i was on top of the world. 
Speaking of top, as I began to feel nor- 
n. i was able fully to appreciate 
II, ; the Mount. It was restful 

The atmosphere made me 
feel a 'tic. 

I was amazed at the efficiency of the 

the in si day rush, I was pleased at the 

friendly, infoi mal Littl . e* ited 

incing in the Ball 

Room, and thrilled with the new library. 

Year's Program 
Of Varied Sports 
Outlined by W.A.A. 

The Mount's W.A.A. has already made 
plans for extra-curricular activities for 

jet aside for 
games, dances, and rallies. 

Mr. Heremans has begun his elemen- 
fencing class held at 3:30 on Tues- 
and Thursdays. Among eager fresh- 
learning the parts of the foil, the 
et areas, and the correct positions 
advance, retreat, and lunge, are Lea 
innell, Barbara Brill, and Arlene 
Advanced fencers, Gloria Pa- 
ililla, Mary Janney. Joyce Pinnock, and 
Yvonne Mazy will begin soon also.

All day I was delighted by the warm, 
interested concern from both faculty and 
student body. 

Good Decision 

Other things made me realize what a 
wonderful decision I had made. They in- 
cluded a sight-seeing tour under the di- 
rection of a very capably guide, Louise 
Powers, and several friendly and helpful 
hints from Mary Krug, Alice Kraemer, 
and Betsy Knieriem, not to mention a 
hello from pretty Pat Reno, and a cheery 
hi from Barbara O'Callaghan. You know 
what a grin or a greeting can do when 
you're all alone. They made me feel 
wanted and a part of the spirit of every- 
one connected with the Mount. 

I could go on for pages, but everything 
adds up to this: everyone who is a new- 
comer, was a newcomer, or is to be a 
newcomer thanks the Mount for the wel- 
come it gives new students, and also 
thanks it for the many other things it 
gives us that will be with us forever. 


'Tis true. Absence maketh the heart 
grow fonder. Faces and subjects you 
never wanted to see again sudden!) 
le quite dear after a summer's res] 
The arduous jiggling ride up the hill be- 
comes exciting. 

The view, through the foe, screen, bc- 
lomes more spectacular. All the old fa- 
miliar spots on campus assume new in- 
terest. Ah, it's good to be back, quoth 
the raven. 

The Rover Girls 

On wheels, by plane, by train, ox cart, 
and roller skates, Mount girls took to 
the highways and by-ways. Dolly Bowler 
was attracted by the beauty of Yellow- 
stone. And from there she wandered to 
the green, green state of Michigan and 
points north, west, south and east. Patty 
Riesner visited the city of the Golden 
Gate just so she could fly home. Her re- 
ports: ahhh, the view, the view. The food 
on the plane was good too. Incidental of 

Erica Orth, Madame post mistress, 
and Phyllis Renville. "What kind of 
vegetables do you want please?" return- 
ed to Lake Tahoe and Meeks Bay for the 
• nd summer. It's becoming a habit, 
a Aragon journeyed to Ciudad Mej- 
ico to try out her Spanish accent which 
she acquired in Conversacion de Espanol, 
n'est-ce pas. Fraulein. 

Shirley Zcrkie played leap frog With 
the prairie dogs in Carson City for a 
while but inclement weather and bore- 
dom drove her back to our city. Eleanor 
Roberts took off for the hills and camp- 
ed In all the interesting places through- 
out the state. Mt. Shasta, Big Sur, The 
Redwoods, Yosemite, and Tioga Pass. 

I'nion Hours 

Pat Campbell worked one whole day 
at Bullock's Westwood as a model for 
the campus show. From there on it was 
the call of the surf. Katherine Hogan 
tried her apron for size as a lab tech at 
Sawtelle, Louise Powers brightened Loy- 
ola Law School. What a dull place 
work: would you like to trade jobs? 

Millie Lerch and Wanda Mankiew 
did duty for Dr. Pollia. Peggy McLoone 
struggling hard to keep that southern 
drawl, honey, added calories and juggled 
diets at St. John's Hospital. How did 
you all like it? 

As the Schmoo said on being led to the 
slaughter, "Enough is enough, and too 
much is too much." 

Board Representatives 

Elected by the W.A.A. Board as class 
■esentatives were: Carol Sebastian, 
senior; Yvonne Mazy, junior; and Lu- 
pita Bernstein, sophomore. The fresh- 
man delegate has not yet been ch. 

These girls will inform their respective 
classes of the current programs and 
answer questions about any W A A 
sponsored activity

Reveals Traits 

Take a peek through our green key- 
hole and find out what goes on under

That girl, with long curly eyelashes 
and a prima donna air, seen so much 
around the residence halls is Dorothy 
O'Hara. She likes to display her artistic 
temperament, and her talents run to 
drama, art, and music. 

Ann Spalding is a member of the group

Can you imagine a delightful break-

Homemaking is an art and if we do 
nothing except develop an appreciation

fulfilled its task. 

Red Rules the Roost 

In this issue, special attention is on 
the opening of school. As always, the 

x a room on campus is a l 
of " ion. For a striking idea 

of what can be done to two beds, 
desks, a dresser, and a window, look at 
room 210 in Residence Hall. From 
name tags on the door to the small red 
flower pots on the window sill, it is a 
picture in red. Its designers, creai 
and producers are the occupants, Kay 
Thompson, and Connie Rodee. 

On first floor Marion Meyer (Impyi 
and Marilyn Morris have ruffles from top 
to bottom. The color scheme is Prus 
blue and white with a dash of pink. 
Sprinkled over the top of white quilted 
cotton spreads are sprays of blue flow- 
ers tied with a pale pink sash. Around 
the sides of the spreads are full nil 
ol solid blue. Matching ruffled drap. 
give this room a fairy -land touch.

Is It Catholic Literature vs. Realism? 

Why be dull ? 

Why miss the highlights of contemporary Catholic literature? 

Come to the Little Theatre next Tuesday, October 5, at 11:00 and hear about 

"Waugh and Greene — Catholic Shockers." 

Father Gardiner, literary editor of America lectures on this pertinent topic for 
all who have been reading and discussing these two authors. 

If you've been wondering about the place of— 

"Realism in Literature — Good or Bad?" 
come with your Sodality or Student Body card and a quarter to the seminar in the 
afternoon, 1:30 to 3:30. 

To get the most from and to contribute your best to the discussion, read Father 
Gardiner's Tenets for Readers and Reviewers, a small, powerful pamphlet which 
will be on sale here at the Mount. 

For good reference, re-read the reviews of Evelyn Waugh's, 'The Loved One," 
(June 25), and of Graham Greene's "The Heart of the Matter," (July 16), in The

And on benediction days when the sweet music of the organ swells the chapel 
and streams out across the grounds, filtering into your room, didn't you feel just

hymns ?

a hundred Mount St. Mary's students find their way into the quiet corners of Mary 
chapel. The visits aren't Ion ,h to say a prayer of adoration con-

one to the Sisters as they pass through the chapel-faculty court. 

What we do is commendable — we just don't do enough. Let's stop passing up 
that afternoon visit for more chit-chat in the lounge. Let's "rise and shine" a few 
minutes earlier and make it in time for Mass. Let's increase the numbers at evening

Adler Lectures 
Youth Is Obstacle 
To Real Learning 

By Mary .ln:inn I ,lnd< nf< Ill

Mortimer J. Adler. Jewish by birth, 
Christian by philosophy, proved this 
point when he lectured Friday, Oct. 1 at 
the Wilshirc-Ebell Theatre. 
Mr. Adlii la professor of the Philosophy

one of America's leading exponents of 
the philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas. 

His topic Friday evening, The <.re;it 
Book's Foundation received a thorough 
going-over both in his prepared speech 
and in the ably-handled question period. 

Taking this title as a stepping stone, 
Mr. A. Her explained the foundation in 
terms of adult education. The latter, he 
said, must be interminable and as uni- 
versal as "schooling." 

■ iut the advantages of formal 
adult education, Mr. Adler noted that 
the greatest obstacles to learning is 
youth. Real education demands mature 

erience. Youth cannot possibly ac- 
quire this while stnj££hnK through the 

tool days." Hence, according to Pro-

Staylng with his thesis. Professor Ad-

of getting it. The process takes a life-

Social Welfare Graduates Enter Wider Fields 
Of Work and Study as Holy Father Asks 

Mindful of the repeated exhortations of 1 the Holy Father that Catholic women 
become active in governmental affairs, six June graduates of the Mount have taken 
positions in governmental agencies in the State of California. 

Pearl Butier is a social worker with the Bureau of Public Assistance of the Los 
Angeles County Department of Charities. Patricia Spender is in a similar position 
in Ventura County; Dorothy Schmidt 

and Irene Stehly in Orange County; 
Mary Carroll in Indio County; and Pa- 
tricia Smith in San Diego County. 
Examinations Passed 

To qualify for these public welfare ap- 
pointments, the applicants must pass 
written and oral examinations given ei- 
ther by the State Personnel Board or 
the County Civil Service Commission. 

Two other majors in Social Welfare 
have accepted positions with private so- 
cial agencies. Peggy Wylie is a case 
worker for Saint Vincent's Day Nursery 
in Santa Barbara. Rita Fischer has join- 
ed the staff of the National Girl Scouts 
in the Minneapolis region.

A minor in physical education is now 
being offered at the Mount, final ar- 
rangements having been completed only 
a week ago. Sociology and social welfare 
are so correlated with physical education 
that anyone majoring in either of the 
former may easily minor in P. E. How- 
ever, students in any field may also mi- 
nor in physical education with the proper 
preparatory subjects. 

Social welfare majors Yvonne Mazy, 
Mary Ellen Likins, and Barbara O'Calla- 
ghan, and sophomores Hugette Hery, 
June McLaren, and Helene Knapp have 
begun the first P. E. minor in the Mount 

Miss Willa Bailey from U.C.L.A. is

offered: Kinesiology, Principles of Phys- 
ical Education, Corrective Physical Ed- 
ucation, Physiology of Exercise, and 
Teaching of Athletics. 

Anatomy and physiology, fencing, ar- 
chery, and tennis are preparatory sub- 
jects for the P. E. minor. With the ap- 
proval of the head of the major depart- 
ment concerned, physical education may 
be used as a minor in obtaining a Sec-

Cancer Research 

Notre Dame University students want OontinUeS at Mount 

Mount students to write them letters! 
Greg Halpin, feature editor of the Notre 
Dame Scholastic, is conducting a survey 
to help classify the "weird lot" of 5,000 
males that make up the student body of 
this university in Indiana. 

He wrote. "We are asking them (col- 
lege girls l to write us letters on the sub- 
MAN. We do not care if the girls writing 
us have ever met a Notre Dame student. 
Let these fortunates use their imagina- 
tion. We just want a whole mess of let- 
ters and opinions on the subject" 

Further directions say that letters may 
be of any length. They may be serious 
or otherwise. The best of them will be 
printed in the Scholastic along with the 
author's picture "if same is inclosed in 
printable condition." 

All letters should be addressed to:

Mr. Halpin concludes, "The more let- 
the better. Write a letter yourself — 
if you feel the spirit." 

Cancer research students at the Mount 
are carrying on work outlined by Dr. 
Pollia before his departure. Dr. Pollia 
is expected to return from New York 
around November 1. 

Not all research is being done on the

What Is a Catholic Novel? 

Realism, Idealistic and Materialistic, 
Defined by Literary Editor of 'America' 

Father Harold C. Gardiner, S.J., literary editor of America magazine lectured 
to Mount students in the Little Theater on October 5. Speaking on the topic "Cath- 
olic Shockers?" Father Gardiner presented his views on two renowned English 
Catholic authors, Evelyn Waugh and Graham Greene. 

He discussed currently talked-about works of each, notably Heart of the Matter 
by Mr. Greene and The Loved One by Mr. 
Waugh. He declared both authors to be 
realistic, a fact which may be disturbing 
to Catholic readers. Realism, however, 
said Father, can be divided into two 
classes: naturalistic and idealistic. Using 
idealistic realism, Mr. Waugh and Mr. 
Greene have succeeded not only in bring- 
ing out the wrong but also the good in 
their portrayals of life. Father Gardiner 
cited Studs Lonigan by James Farrell as 
an example of naturalistic realism, where 
only the lewdness of Studs Lonigan's life 
is brought to focus. 

Father Gardiner described Graham 
Greene as an author with no sensuous 
graces of style, interested only in telling 
a tale. In spite of this lack of description, 
one can nevertheless draw an individual 
idea of the character. On the other hand, 
according to Father, Evelyn Waugh, the 
master satirist, has an incomparable 
ability for writing obliquely, yet convey- 
ing his idea precisely as intended. 

Father Gardiner pointed out that a 
disturbing fault of Catholic readers is 
that they, on the whole, are humorless 
about spirituality. "We are at home with 
the faith and at home we can relax," he

A leadership workshop, open to all 
college students, will be held on Novem- 
ber 21, N.F.C.C.S. president Gene Tighe 
announced at the latest meeting of the

Mary's Hour Committee are Margie 
Biggs, Mount St. Mary's; Ed Klinger, Al 
Germann, and Garth Hintz of Loyola; 
and Helen Sterner of Immaculate Heart. 

Representatives at the meeting decid-

Student Will Appear 
With Opera Company 
In Two Coastal Cities 

The Mount has a special interest in the 
current engagement of the San Fran- 
cisco Opera Company. Sophomore music 
major Frances Carretta will appear in 
"Die Meistersinger" with the Robert 
Wagner Choir on October 24 at the Phil- 
harmonic Auditorium. She will travel 
with the group to San Francisco in De- 
cember for an engagement in the bay 

In addition, Frances will sing with the 
Los Angeles Philharmonic in the Mozart 
Requiem. This will be at the close of the 
concert series this year. 

Frances appeared with a ballet corps 
of the Metropolitan Opera Company at 
the age of six. She was active in music 
at Catholic Girls' High before coming to 
the Mount. .

Being An American? 

Hiing an American is a rather forbid- 
ding title for a book which is simply a 
collection of speeches and articles by 
William O. Douglas, Associate Supreme 
1 1 Justice. The Jjook includes a short 
i aphy of Mr. Douglas by Richard J. 
ilsh who selected and edited the 

lies and articles for publication. 
Much of Douglas' political philosophy 
is 1 1 resented through his pictures of great 
■ ricans like Franklin Roosevelt, Geo. 
Norris, and Louis Brandeis. Being an 
American is made up of speeches Doug- 
las has made since he was appointed to 
the Supreme Court in 1939. They show 
remarkable consistency of ideal and pur- 
pose, with, however, considerable repe- 
tition in speeches made in different 
ea and on different occasions. Doug- 
las stresses duties as well as rights of 
the citizen.

who are interested in good music. 

Members will be able to obtain season 
tickets to the Philharmonic at a one- 
third reduction; they will also have an 
opportunity to witness the Thursday 
morning rehearsals of the Philharmonic 
orchestra. Arrangements will be made 
later to have the artists of the orchestra

Boarder Choir Sings Mass 

A growing organization among resi- 
dent students is the boarder choir, which 
sings High Mass every Sunday at St. 
Martin of Tours Church. 

Among the members of the choir are 
the Aguiars, Carol and Charlotte, who 
do not live on campus but nevertheless 
join the group on Sundays, Jeanne King- 
ston, Dolores Welgoss and Catherine 
Ford. Evening practices are held on 
Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Beck-

Wrsiwood Book 



By Frances Formanrck 
Divergence of opinion is the main factor in a poll. Three-eighths of my Inquiries 
on "Do you like the Missa Recitata and why?" were answered in the negative The 
opinion of Shirley Renville, freshman, Rita Custado and Dolores Welgoss, sopho- 
mores, is that they can't concentrate well enough on the Mass when prayers are 
being recited aloud. Dolores states that, "Reading the Latin in itself is good but 
personally, I feel it is better for me to ' 

read the Mass in English so that I may ■ ; 

understand it." Another argument 
brought up by both Rita and Shirley is 
that, never having taken Latin them- 
selves, they do not know what they are 
reading, and, hence, feel that their par- 
ticipation in the Mass is lessened by 
their inability to grasp the meaning of 
words, aside from the simpler Latin 
phrases such as "orate fratrcs, credo 
and sanctus." 

Speaking from the other camp, Senior 
Mildred Lerch, Freshman Theresc Ma- 
guire. Junior Barbara Barnes, Sopho- 
more Ml. lull- Wilson, and Freshman 
Sharon McPherson all enthusiastically 
affirmed the question with various view 
points. Mildred likes Missa Recitata be- 
cause it is a new experience for her. She 
says, "This is the first time that the 
i Recitata has been said in any 
school I have attended;'' while Barbara 
and Sharon, both having recited 11 In

! ed on the Mass by their oral par- 
ticipation and, with auch a large group

Red Cross Doll Project 
Undertaken by Sorority 

Tau Alpha Zcta sorority has under- 
taken a project to dress dolls for the Red 
Cross. These dolls are to be finished by 
November 10 and will be given to needy 
children at Christmas time, this is an 
annual project of the sorority. 

Carol Gallagher was elected publicity 
chairman and historian of the TAZ at 
a recent meeting. The next meeting is 
luled for October 17 at Pat Camp- 
bell's home. 

Planning Committee 
Sets $30,000 as Goal for 
European Student Drive 

Members of the planning committee 
set $30,000 as the goal for the 48-49 Na- 
tional Federation of Catholic College 
Students' Relief Drive, at a recent meet- 
ing at Immaculate Heart College on Sep- 
tember 30. 

Bob Ploudre, of Loyola, recently ap- 
pointed relief chairman of the Southern 
California Region, led the discussion of 
plans to raise money and a question- 
naire on suggested means for raising 
funds has been circulated among the va- 
rious student bodies. 

The four Catholic colleges of the area 
were represented by N.F.C.C.S. officers 
and representatives of the various stu- 
dent bodies. Present from the Mount 
were Gloria Padilla, Marianne De Cour- 
sey, Mary Janney, Joyce Pinnock, Joan 
Russell and Betsy Sullivan. 

To date the southern California region 
of the N.F.C.C.S. has been respectively 
second and first in the nation in amount 
of help sent in two drives last year. 

Club Policy Changed; 
Frosh Now Admitted 

New officers of Kappa Theta Mu are 
Mildred Lerch, president; Patricia Spain, 
vice-president; Patricia Ricsner. secre- 
tary; and Mary O'Brien, treasurer. 

The policy of Kappa Theta Mu has 
been to admit only sophomore, junior, 
and senior majors and minors in biology, 
chemistry, home economics, and mathe- 
matics. However, at a recent meeting de- 
partment advisors and club officers de- 
cided to admit freshmen to the club. 

Kappa Theta Mu is planning an active 
schedule including a field-trip each se- 
mester and lectures to further the mem- 
bers' knowledge of what others have ac- 
complished in the fields of science.

The HOME EC-ho 

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does 

your garden grow 
With linens fair and china there and 
shining silver all in a row ? 

When you stop to think about it, and 
who doesn't, what will be the most ex- 
pensive item in your hope chest? It will 
be your STERLING SILVER. You must 
devote time to its selection, since it is a 
distinguishing mark of your fine taste. 

One of the most controversial points 
on the selection of silver is whether it 
should be plain or ornate. Regardless of 
how many leaflets or articles one reads 
on this subject, one always ends with 
the same answer. "Select according to 
your likes and in accordance with the 
other accessories that will complement 
it." This rule is very important, but we 
believe in an even better rule. Decide 
first how often you will use your silver, 
and then select other articles according- 
I tililv Scr\.-s As Guide 

Silver becomes more beautiful with 
use. It acquires that "butler's shine" or 
pating which makes it so rich and lus- 
trous. However, on silver with a plain 
surface those small scratches on the 
patina cover such a large area that the 
silver loses its true beauty. A pattern 
covering the entire surface need not be 
heavy. Some of the most beautiful and 
by far the most serviceable are of this 
type. Because of the all-over design, no 
large area is exposed. The tiny scratches 
on the raised design makes it appear 
softer the more it is used. 

Silver can be added in entire place 
rigs, or in individual pieces. 
Student Plans for Future 

To some, it might seem far-fetched to 
be talking in terms of hope chests, china, 
and sterling. To others it might be an in- 
centive. Lyla Burrows, a Mount gradu- 
ate who is now Mrs. Robert Cox, had her 
silver started for her by her mother on 
her first birthday. She received silver 
pieces as gifts and by the time she mar- 
ried, Lyla had a complete set. She did 
not have to wait for her wedding to enjoy

The Loved One 

Biidesliead Revisited was in the book 
stores, and critics were chanting the 
dirge of a lost talent. Evelyn Waugh had 
turned Catholic! His books henceforth 
would be fictionized sermons — take

Deep purple fell not only over the gar- 
den walls but also over the atmosphere 
of the Mount ballroom on the night of 
the successful Junior dance. Dancing be-

Even Volleyball Court- 
Has the New Look 

The volleyball court has acquired the 
"new look." Besides the freshly painted 
yellow and white lines, a new pole has 
replaced last year's crippled one; and 
with the net higher and tighter than 
ever, new faces are appearing every day. 

Some of the newest enthusiasts at 
noon games are Joan and Diane Terpen- 
lng, Mary Lou Hart, Ann Baur, June 
Hustlng. Helen Kemper, Peggy Scott, 
Vivian Burgess, and Mary Ishida. Soph- 
omore Gloria Mankiewicz is still trying 
to hit that piece of leather "over the net 
— not the fence." 

Noon periods are not long enough for 
some girls. Marianne De Coursey, Doris 
Bursk, Joan Herold, and Mary Alice Con- 
nors prefer to play for a fifty-minute 
free period. Resident students prefer the 
evenings. Alice Kraemcr, Kay Mackin, 
Catherine Ford, Marilyn Yee, Rita Mur- 
ray, Jackie Stctler. Lillian Lu, Marion 
Clark, and Celine Freitas are practicing 
for the coming doubles and class games. 

For diversion, Barbara and Ruth 
"Spud" Galen, Ann Wong, Jeanne Frye. 
Gloria Padilla, Marion "Impy" Meyer, 
and Marilyn Morris have taken a turn 
out of season at basketball. 

Tennis Classes Greet 
New Season, Scott Method 

Monday, October 11, saw the official 
beginning of the tennis classes. Mr. Al 
Scott, Mount tennis coach, has trained 
four student teachers, Mary Ellen Likins, 
Barbara O'Callaghan, Rita Custado, and 
Mary Beth Baca. Their assistants are 
Yvonne Mazy, Hugette Hery, Mary Alice 
Connors, and Lupita Bernstein. Regular 
classes are on Monday, Tuesday, and 
Wednesday afternoon. Thursday after- 
noons are reserved for a student teach- 
ers' class given by Mr. Scott. 

Classes last week were large. Rose 
Parrino, Mary Magdalene Digneo, Mary 
Jane Quinn, and Peggy Scott were only a 
few of the freshmen who wished to learn 
Mr. Scott's method of playing tennis.

ending a philosophy class with an evil

with difficult names like Musumeci and 
Lotode rivals his consistency in calling 
on students whose minds wander. 

Father Vaughan has studied extensive- 
ly in Germany, Spain, and Italy. At one 
time he was in charge of the Vatican 
radio station, and now he has his own 
program, The Catholic Quarter Hour, 
heard over KRKD.

Minnesota Yarn Vanishes 

Janie Donnelly, sophomore, has been 
using her spare time to knit a tie. Re-

Mary Ann Cunningham, "I'm only eight 
rows from the end and I've run out of 
yarn! What shall I do?" 

"Keep calm, Janie," Mary Ann an- 

red, "just go back to the store where 

you got the yarn and buy some more.''

St. Paul, Minnesota!" 

Volleyball Season Opens 
With Doubles Tournament 

yball season was officially opened 
at the last student body meeting by Glo- 
ria Putman when she announced the 
doubles tournament. 

Two girls are on each team for 
doubles. The rules are the same as for a 
regular nine-man game. A regular size 
court may be used. A schedule will be 
posted, and a deadline for each round 
will be announced. Games not played 
within the given time will be forfeited 
by both teams. If a team fails to keep its 
appointment, the opponent, upon report- 
ing to Gloria Putman, will win by de- 
fault Results of all games must be re- 
ported to Gloria Putman. 

All games, except semi-finals and fi- 
nals, will consist of one 21 -point game. 
Semi-finals will consist of three 21-point 

Games may be played during any free 
period, at noon, or after school.

editorial in the September 22 issue of 
The Santa Clara: "We of the student 
world are confronted by an unending se- 

<>f choices and decisions that can be 
made by no one other than ourselves. We 
are in that age of our lives where we 
must establish our foundations on solid

The new Lounge Library is for you to enjoy. If you start a fascinating little 
book like The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis or Dear Bishop by Catherine De 
Hueck and you just can't put it down. Don't — take it home! 

First sign the card in the pocket and drop it in the file box. Then as soon as 
you finish the book, please bring it back so that others can read it. You know how 
good it is. Let others know, too. 

IT'S Your Right . . . IT'S Your Duty 

You may be a registered voter. If you aren't, you will be. The probability of 
the voting age being lowered to eighteen grows less unlikely. President Truman, 
Governor Dewey, and Mr. Wallace spoke in Los Angeles recently. Do you know 
what they said? Do you know the basic differences in the Democratic, Republican, 
and Progressive platforms? 

The United States has a representative government. Do you know who your 
representatives are? How did they vote on the Housing Bill, price control, Taft- 
Hartley Act, tax cut, and Marshall Plan? You have the right to tell them what 
you want. But before you tell them how you want them to vote, you must know 
what the issues are. Because most things are arranged in the order of their impor- 
tance, try reading the daily paper starting with the first page — even though you

Let God out of the closet. Welcome Him into your life — every phase of it. Each

Seeing Him on Sunday is not enough. Learn from St. Catherine of Siena how 
necessary sincere contemplation is to successful action. Learn from the Mother of 
God of the vocation of every woman, the vocation of fulfilling perfectly the will of 
God. Learn from St. Monica the value of redemptive tears and true joy. 

Learn from Father Vann, from Leen, from Ed Watkin, from Mary Perkins, from 
Peter Michaels, from those who spark today's Christian renaissance, to be today's 
truly Christian woman. 

It Takes Only One 

You want to be an apostle. You're afraid to try anything big, but once in a 
while you are able to persuade your chum to make an extra visit, to go to week- 
day Mass, or you change the conversation when it turns into a discussion of the bad 
points of a fellow student. 

Here is another idea. The Angelus rings every day at the time you are hurrying 
to lunch and in the evening as you rush from the 5:15 bus to dinner. 

Everybody else around you keeps on walking, but why don't you stand still. 
Make the Sign of the Cross, and pray silently. Soon you will see others doing the 
same thing. It takes only one to start. Be the one. 

Periodically Speaking To Be or Not to Be 

The wonder-worders of Time magazine 
unconsciously (or was it?) furthered 
Catholic education in their recent two- 
page spread on the Archbishop Stepinac 
High School dedication in New York. 
Among the statistics on "today's mar- 
tyrs" and the "growing Catholic educa- 
tional system" are inserted the argu- 
ments for parochial school equality, 
which have finally found a national secu- 
• lar outlet. 

October's Catholic School Journal, an 
example of the educator's resourceful- 
ness, should help the Brentwood School 
commuters keep their charges out of 
mischief and in good spirits. The above 
is an antidote for children who will be 
children; but to sympathize with Mom or 
prepare for the shock of raising young- 
sters, read Rosemary Missey's "Why 
Mothers Go Mad" in this month': I .imilv 
Digest. The mother of four sons, addict- 
ed to the Lone Ranger, free-for-alls and 
dirty faces, writes of her hectic life. 

Budding critics and theologians will 
find Adam dc Hcgedus' "Graham Greene

In Campus Magazine 

Inadvertently the Mount appeared in 
this fall's first issue of Campus maga- 
zine. That inclusion brought the problem 
of the Mount's attitude toward and par- 
iation in the magazine to the atten- 
tion of the Student Council. At the last 
meeting, the Council decided in favor of 
a general vote of the Associated Students 
to determine the issue. 

As a precaution against a prejudiced 
M.le, the council wishes the point at 
stake made clear. Here arc the main 
a under discussion. 

At the end of last year, the Student 
Council voted the Mount officially out

Present Tense 

Chinese Communists captured Tsinan, 
capital of Shantung province. Capture of 
Tsinan put the Communist armies in a 
position to control the road and railway 
facilities of the Shantung peninsula, 
General Wang Yao-wu, governor of 
Shantung, and his nationalist armies 
have been fighting a losing battle with 
the Communist forces for over a year, 
His troops were near starvation and 
morale was low. Across the Yellow River 
from Wang's headquarters, Communist 
Commander, Chen Yi, had set up a "re- 
ception house" and spread the word that 
all hungry nationalist deserters would be 

Russia's Andrei Vishinsky announced 
that the Soviet Union would boycott 
the Berlin debate in the UN. Security 
Council, which had voted 9-2 to hear 
full details of the east-west dispute. 
Vishinsky claimed that the discussion 
by the Security Council was illegal and 
that the dispute should be handled by 
the four power council of foreign min- 
isters. He said that "the adoption by 
the majority of the Security Council of 
the present item for consideration con- 
stitutes violation of Article 107 of the 
Charter, according to which such a 
question should be decided by 'the pow- 
ers responsible for the occupation ol 
Germany . . . That is ineluctable, in- 
dubitable, and unquestionable." Vishin- 
sky argued that the UN. Charter bans 
U.N. action related to any former en- 
emy state, the western powers 
that the Berlin question involves pri- 
marily Russia, Britain, France, and the 
United States. 

The United States, Britain, and France 
had asked the Security Council to con- 
sider Chapter VII of the Charter, which 
permits strong action against any gov - 
crnment which is convicted In the Se- 
curity Council of threatening peace. 

However, any of the great powers eati 
\<to the decision. It Is a disputed ques- 
tion whether or not tin- absence ol one 
of the great powers Constitutes a veto. 
It Is possible that Russia will have some- 
body, other than Vishinsky, present to 
veto any decision favoring the western 
powers. Without Hussia the Council can 
deliberate, but not make any decision 
which requires a unanimous affirmative 
vote of the Big Five. 

In the only other Soviet refusal to talo 

part in Security Council debate, Vndrel 

Gromyko walked out and remained se- 

. holed from newsmen and fellow dele- 
gates for two weeks during thr Iranian 
case in 1946.

Mount St. Mary's Delegate Tells NSA Results of 
Summer's First National Congress at U. of Wisconsin 

The first National Congress of the United States National Student Association, 
held August 23-28, brought to Madison, Wis., more than 700 delegates and observers 
representing student bodies of over 240 universities and colleges. 

The meetings, organized into eleven workshops and several amorphous plenary 
sessions, was characterized by individual participation aimed at practical domestic 
programs for 1948-49. In the workshops 

emphasis was on domestic student serv- 
ice projects. 
IMan for Student Discounts 

The delegates' attitude was an almost 
unanimous adoption of the Purchase 
Card Plan under which basic student 
• Is may be procured at substantial 
. ..unts. Lee Jones, outgoing treasurer 
of NSA, devised this plan, experimented 
with it in Buffalo, and secured its adop- 
tion by the use of effective sales tech- 

The delegation from the University of 
Michigan suggested responsible student 
participation in freshman orientation 
programs. Their plan involves a coun- 
selling service by seniors on a campus- 
wide basis. The counsellors, who must 
satisfy high academic requirements, sup- 
ply information about various courses of- 
fered by the college and aid freshmen in 
the selection of major fields of study. 
NSA Will Foster Student Talent 

The relief workshop asked NSA to 
create a central office which would func- 
tion as a national coordinating agency on 
1 needs and campaigns. Cultural 
Welfare workshop recommended annual 
publication of an anthology that will call 
attention to undergraduate creative tal- 
ent; a series of student-written, directed, 
and acted radio broadcasts; a series of 
regional inter-collegiate concerts. The 
NSA art exhibit, staged on the Wisconsin 
campus by Helen Jean Rogers and Mar- 
garet Leipsiger of Mundelein College, 
was a successful harbinger of the organi- 
zation's future cultural achievements. 

Delegates Discuss Aspects of IUS 

While the workshops were occupied 
with the domestic aspects of student 
problems, international affairs consumed 
Hi. major portion of plenary session 
The question of American student 
relations with the International Union 
indents, which was discussed last 
year, was again paraded before the dele- 
gates. The source of this year's contro- 
v lay in the fact that the proponents 
of two vague approaches to the IUS 
problem appeared as candidates for the 
of international vice president.

Father Scannell Urges 
'Concerted Catholic 
Action' in Talk to NFCCS 

At the last NFCCS meeting held at 
Mount Saint Mary's on October 20, Pres- 
ident Gene Tighe welcomed Father Rich- 
ard J. Scannell as newly appointed Di- 
rector of Sodalities. 

Addressing a few words to the group, 
Father urged "concerted Catholic ac- 
tion." "The efficacy and measure of suc- 
cess of NFCCS depends on how we live 
Christ," he said. 

The next meeting will be held Novem-

How Well-Informed Is the Average College Student? 
Student Poll Reveals Diversity of Opinion 


Yvonne Mazy, junior, feels that the question "cannot be answered with a simple 
yes or no." The students must be divided into three definite groups: a small per- 
centage of the very well informed (those gaining their knowledge from every possi- 
ble source newspapers, news commentators and magazines such as Newsweek and 

Time) ; the informed (those interested who gain their knowledge by listening to dis- 
cussions and asking questions); and the 
"so-called uninformed" (making up the 
largest percentage), who are uninformed 
because they lack interest and make no 
effort to keep up with current national 
and international affairs. Yvonne thinks 
that too many readers ignore the front 
page and editorial page. Sophomore 
Clalro Kassler agrees with Yvonne, but, 
along with the majority of those polled, 
she says definitely NO: students are not 
well informed. Those holding this atti- 
tude in varying degrees are Juniors Jean 
Uussill an.l Louise Powers, and Senior 
I i. .mm- Gmelndl; while Evelyn Ishida, 
sophomore, thinks that many are well 
informed, but more should be. Evelyn 
suggests listening to radio news analyses 
— in which the commentator lakes one 
item and discusses it fully. She listens to 
Charles Collingwood. 

Jean suggests that daily newspapers 
(and more of them i be displayed more 
prominently in the library and other fo- 
cal points with emphasis on international 
and national problems and their direct 
relation to us. People tell you all the 
world's problems, Jean says, but they

cede complete uninterest of students, but

Student Acclaims . . . 

The Lois-Guy Maier 
Duo Recital at Mount 

by Lois Kurt 

Lois and Guy Maier presented a two- 
piano program Tuesday evening, October 
19. They first played Bach's "Organ 
Fugue," then Mozart's "Allegro Motto." 
"Aria with 18 Variations" seems too spi- 
rited and complex to have been written, 
according to Mr. Maier, by Bach to cure 
Count Kaiserling's insomnia. 

The dance rhythms, including the 
"Gypsy Song from Carmen," "Old Dutch 
Clock," "Jamaican Rhumba" and "Bra- 
siliera," stirred feet and hearts. Then the 
audience heard "Tango at Midnight" and 
"New Orleans Mardi Gras." The "Friend- 
ship Waltz," written for the couple by a 
friend, set the mood for a new arrange- 
ment of "Blue Danube Waltzes." 

Although obstructed by faulty stage 
acoustics, the dual timing and technique 
of Lois and Guy Maier were almost flaw- 
less. Mrs. Maier's grace and supple pian- 
ism complemented Mr. Maier's strength 
and solidity.

40-14 in Volleyball 

In a pre-seasonal game the Mount 
basketball team defeated 40-14 a team 
composed of the younger and more ath- 
letic employees of the Pacific Telephone 
and Telegraph Co., at the Echo Park 
Playground. Grace Mae McNamara, a 
former Mount student of the Class of 
'50, was a member of the opposing 
team. Forwarding for the Mount were 
Yvonne Mazy, Lupita Bernstein, Peggy 
Scott, and Barbara O'Callaghen. 

Within the first two minutes of the 
game Miss Mazy scored 6 points followed 
by Miss McNamara for 4 points. At the 
other end of the court, guarding and pre- 
venting the opposition from scoring, were 
Mary Ellen Likins, Louise Powers, Glor- 
ia Putman, and Helen Kemp«r. 

This was the first of several outside 
games in volleyball and basketball 
planned by the W.A.A.

Dorm Seeks Name 

Freshman boarders of the dorm are 
suffering from a serious malady of 
"name neurosis." They are rebelling at 
having their "home" referred to as the 
HOTEL. The only way to remedy this 
ailment is to christen the dormitory with 
a new, appropriate name. The aid of oth- 
er resident students is being enlisted to 
help choose a title that will remain long. 

A "NAME THE DORM" contest will 
be held from October 28 until noon 
November 2. Resident students are asked 
to place their suggestions in the box 
outside the dormitory door. The winning 
name will be announced on November 
11, and a prize will be awarded. Judging 
will be under the guidance of Sister Rose 
Gertrude. (Occupants reserve the right 
to reject suggestions that are foreign in 
appearance or that tick!)

red and white as their favorite colors

HOME EC-ho Distinguishes Chinaware and Pottery 
Storing and Selecting Tips Given Homemakers 

Quaint old china in a row 

Telling tales of long ago; 

Tales of happiness, love and tears, 

Limning life throughout the years. 

In distinguishing chinaware from all 
■ I her pottery a reliable test is to hold it 
to the light, placing your hand behind it. 
If the shadow of the hand shows through, 
the ware is actually vitrified china. 

Often the amateur finds it difficult to 
understand the difference between pot- 
tery and china. In the fullest sense of 
the term, pottery includes all ware made 
of clay, moulded into shape while in a 
moist state and then hardened by fire. 
The actual difference between the two 
are these three characteristics: 

1. China uses a certain kind of clay 
which is purified, then baked 

2. China has transparency 

3. China is not as porous nor as ab- 
sorbent as pottery 

I j pea Determined 

The material used in the manufacture 
of china and the degree to which it is 
baked determine the type. What is the 
importance of this to you, the consumer? 
Did you ever see a cracked dish with a 
dark stain in the crack? That is non- 
vitreous ware and the piece has absorbed 
grease and other food particles because 
it is porous. Since clean, sanitary table 
service is desired, it is imperative that 
china be vitrified. In tests conducted by 
the Bureau of Standards which include 

temperature, shock and impact, vitrified 
china has proved to be the most durable 

When you select your china, see that 
it harmonizes with the settings in which 
it will be used— from the furnlturi 
the silver. An informal room of maple 
would be highly complemented with a 
gay floral pattern. With the more formal 
Duncan Phyfe, a more formal tou* I 
needed; either plain with a band of gold 
or a highly decorated pattern. Because 
breakage can be expected, one must al- 
ways select a pattern from an open 
stock — one from which pieces can be 
bought individually. 

How to Stack 

Since chipped and cracked china is un- 
desirable, adequate space is necessary to 
preserve it. Dishes must not be stacked 
too high and like pieces should be in the 
same stack. Otherwise strain is likely to 
crack the bottom pieces. Cup han.i 
always a problem with homemakers, will 
last longer if they are placed on a shell 
individually rather than "nested." 

After dinner, if you cannot wash your 
china immediately, at least rinse it so the 
effect of acid on the overglaze decora- 
tions will be minimized. With the vogue 
for gold ornamentation on dinncrware 
this precaution is especially important 
because many foods like eggs and vine- 
gar react chemically to discolor the ^ 

Show off your china whenever pos- 
sible. It's good food psychology.

View Points Editorial View 

Dear Editor: 

Missa Recitata has been a controversial 
subject on campus for some time. Every- 
one is entitled to an opinion on the sub- 
ject. However, we should aim to be of 
the mind of the Church as found in the 
new encyclical on the sacred liturgy, 
Mediator Dei of Pope Pius XLL 

The ideal Mass is a high Mass sung by 
the people uniting themselves with the 
celebrant and with Christ, the High 
Priest. The Dialog Mass is a step in at- 
taining this ideal. 

Since the Holy Sacrifice is a social act 
which emphasizes the unity of the Mys- 
tic al Body, we must share in that act 
more than passively. The nature of man 
requires that every inclination of the 
mind and heart be expressed through the 
senses; therefore recitation of the Mass 
prayers is highly useful both to faith 
and to devotion. 

Participation in the Mass is not les- 
sened by our inability to grasp the mean- 
ing of the Latin. It is not essential to 
concentrate on each word or phrase; it 
is sufficient to have a general under- 
standing of the Mass and to realize the 
we play in offering the sacrifice. It 
takes lime to become familiar with the 
Latin, but certainly a greater union with 
the Mystical Body is worth time and

It's October, 1959 

"Hail Mary, full of grace . . ." The setting sun shines on three small heads 
bowed low, and gleams on Rosary beads held in a mother's prayerful hands. The 
lines in her husband's forehead smooths as he answers with the children, "Holy Mary, 
Mother of God, pray for us . . ." 

The mother momentarily recalls October and May days saying the Rosary at 
noon with her friends at the Mount. She remembers too Father Peyton's zeal in 
spreading the family Rosary. 

Today Russia is a Catholic nation. . Mary's warning, "Unless you say the 
Rosary . . ." has been heeded by people like this mother — millions of little people . . .

Cooperate and Graduate 

You've heard that one before, but from which angle? Cooperate might mean 
lending your own Spanish paper to the roommate or copying the religion assignment 
from the "Brains" in the class. Faster that way, isn't it? Why not help "roomie" 
with her Spanish the night before? And "Brain" would probably be only too glad 
to discuss that religion question if you'd ask her? Who knows maybe you'll learn 

Shades of mid-terms — November 3, 4, 5. The same technique works as well 
when applied to exams. Sure, you can copy when you get the chance, but what are 
you proving? You've got good eyesight maybe! But you're automatically makiny 
the grading system worthless. How about gathering a few of your friends together 
to hash over survey, history or ethics before the test? Studying can be a social 
act too. Then — "Where a few are gathered together in My name, there am I in 
the midst of them." Make that bull session — "All for Thee, most Sacred Heart of 

Pope Speaks to Us 

A recent Tidings editorial on Our Holy Father's words is of special interest to 
college women. Pope Pius XH said, "Although appearing more informed than 
young girls of past generations, the modern girl is often, in reality, less solidly in- 
structed; her experience is superficial, sufficient to tarnish her delicacy and fresh- 
ness but insufficient to keep her on guard against the cunning and hypocrisy of se- 
ducers, also her experience is, above all, negative and she has discovered neither 
the grandeur nor the beauty, nor the wholesome and strong joys of the role which 
claims her in the family and in society." 

"The illusion of soundness and strength, the illusion of experience and prudence, 
both are food for a presumption to which she is by nature, however closely guarded, 
only too prone. She believes she can with impuity, read everything, see everything, 
try everything, taste everything. She will not listen to nor accept advice, at the 
slightest suspicion of 'protection' she rebels. Protection means in her opinion, 
humiliation and servitude; she has no notion of the need she has for it to safeguard 
her feminine diginty and her noble spirit, in order to free herself from all the se- 
ductions, tricks and flatteries of which she is the unknowing dupe and slave." 

Pertaining to this "El Rodeo" commented, "For all her sophistication, for all 
her untrammeled liberty, she is a poor match for the world when it comes down 
to the last analysis." 

Young Christian Students Share Responsibility 
And Charity with Entire Student Community 

At the summer session of Y.C.S., Mount delegates listened to lectures and dis- 
cussed many of today's social problems. Here is a further explanation of what is 
meant by student social responsibility. 

Young Christian Students are trying to make themselves and other students 
aware that they have responsibility now. They endeavor to humanize before they 
Christianize their environment. Basic 
Christ-like charity is the true foundation 
for all of their actions. They must get 
away from personal solicitude and reach 
out to everyone in need. 

To be charitable to one's fellow men, 
it is necessary to understand him as a 
real human being. Man is 1) physical, 
2) emotional, 3) thinking and free (spir- 
itual), and 4) infinite (tending to God). 
If one of the four parts is suppressed, 
he is not a real person. 
A. As a physical being, every man has a 
right to: 

1. food (6 millions are starvim 
2. clothes (How many have the bar- 
est essentials?) 
housing (This Include! pri)

Reverend Francis Thornton, Lecturer, Author, and students urged to choose 

Phase of International 
Affairs for Personal Study 

Anthologist, Will Conduct Summer Class at Mount 

Reverend Francis Beauchesne Thorn- 
ton, compiler of the new Catholic An- 
thology, Return to Tradition, author, 
lecturer, and friend of Chesterton, Bel- 
loc, and the Meynells, is scheduled to 
teach at Mount St. Mary's during the 
1949 summer session. 

Educated at Notre Dame, at Oxford, 
in France, Austria, and Rome, Father 
Thornton has a wide range of literary 
interests and acquaintances. He served 
as first associate editor of The Catholic 
Digest, and was a Major in the Chap- 
lain service of the Canadian Army dur- 
ing the War. His summer course will 
deal with the Catholic revival and tra- 
dition in literature. 

A recent lecturer at the Mount, Father 
Thornton spoke on "Personality Devel- 
opment through Reading." 

The form of a book rather than its 
content often impresses college students, 
according to Father Thornton. Father 
also contends that students are often 
combinations of the "split radio" and 
the "movie blackout" types of person- 

Reading should be knowledgeable 
pleasure", Father said, but because they 
are tied to one circle of interests most 
people remain in a rut "until they think 
the grass that grows above their heads 
is the sky." 

Reading develops the intellect and 
awakens in it a sense that before had 
been dormant. This sense stimulates and 
makes up a completely alive and inter- 
esting personality. 

Father Thornton believes that two 
most helpful reading techniques are to 
be able to grasp the central idea of a 
paragraph and to cultivate the diction- 
ary habit. 

To those who dislike poetry, Father 
suggested the comic poems of Chester- 
ton, Belloc, and Feeney; through ap- 
perciation of them they can be brought 
to the threshold of contemplative poetry. 
"Poetry", Father stated, "is a basis of 
life. Through it the poet dips into the 
rainbow and shares beauty with his

Students Attend 
Church Music Program 

Mount students attended a program 
of Catholic Church music presented by 
the Women Associates of the University 
Religious Conference on Tuesday eve- 
ning, November 16, 1948, in Blessed Sac- 
rament Church. 

The program, entitled "The Catholic 
Tradition of Church Music." was super- 
vised by The Reverend Robert E. Brcn- 
nen, Director of Music. Archdiocese of 
Los Angeles, and featured the choir of 
Blessed Sacrament Church, Mr. Richard 
Keys Biggs, organist and director, and 
Mrs. Lucienne Biggs, associate director. 

Early Gregorian. 16th and 17th Cen- 
tury and present day music were discuss- 
ed by Father Brennan and presented by 
the featured group. An organ Postlude: 
Toccata "Deo Gratias" by Richard Keys 
Biggs closed the evening program. 

Mount students know Mr. and Mrs. 
Biggs as the parents of Margie, Sodality 
Prefect and senior, and sophomore Gerrv 

"An expert isn't an expert on every- 
thing," according to Dr. Eugene Staley, 
luncheon speaker at the Pacific South- 
west International Relations Conference 
held at Santa Ana. Dr. Staley recom- 
mended that each student make a hobby 
of studying some specific field of world 
affairs, such as the atomic energy ques- 
tion or ILO. 

Dr. Polyzoides, professor of journalism 
at USC, spoke on the prevention of 
World War III. He mentioned the 
United States elections as effective 
in strengthening the American position 
in world public opinion, even though 
some delegates to the U.N. Assembly do 
not understand the system of election. 
Dr. Polyzoides credited the United Na- 
tions with keeping the organization to- 
gether and fighting out among states- 
men what is usually fought out on the 

Adelaide Spuhler, Mount senior, led 
the discussion on the Far East. Odette

Comics Discussed at 
Tri Rho Club Meeting 

Comics were the subject of a panel 
discussion at a recent meeting of the 
Tri Rho Club. Discussion leaders were 
Azilda Charbonneau, Rita Custado, Glo- 
ria Murray, and Joan McNulty. Points 
discussed were: How comics affect chil- 
dren morally; sex and crime in the com- 
ics; and substitutes for comics. 

It was generally agreed that comics 
allow good to triumph over evil and that 
heroes and heroines work for the wel- 
fare of mankind. However, chief ob- 
jections were suggestive costumes, low 
type of dialogue, and presentation of er- 
roneous philosophies. 

Timeless Topix, Real Heroes, Calllnfj 
All Girls, Calling All Boys, and Treasure 
' heat were suggestions offered to re- 
place usual comics. 

The McCollum Case will be discussed 
at the next meeting. 

Prize College Script to 
Be Broadcast by Mutual 

A national radio script contest open to 
NFCCS and Newman Club members has 
been announced by the Radio Commis- 
sion of St. Joseph's College. Emmitsburg 
Maryland. The contest offers college stu- 
dents an opportunity to comply with the 
wish of Our Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, 
that radio be "an instrument for the 
spread of Catholic Action." 

The winning script will be used in a 
coast-to-coast broadcast of the Family 
Theater program over the Mutual Broad- 
casting system. 

The contest will close on February 1 1 
1949. Rules, suggestions, and entry' 
blanks are posted on the bulletin board 
in St. Joseph's Hall.

California Will Host Frank Leahy's 
Versatile Fighting Irish, December 4 


Harry Monahan 

Sports Editor of the 

Notre Dame Scholastic 

( Special to 
The View) 
Notre Dame, Ind., 
Nov. 10: Genealo- 
gists (and sports- 
writers) have 
searched the Emer- 
ald Isle but have 
never found the se- 
cluded vale whence 
Frank Leahy re- 
cruits such fighting 
Irishmen as Bydyn- 
k i e wicz, Zmijewski 
and Swistowicz. We 
at Notre Dame don't care whether our 
Ail-Americans are named Connor or 
Czarobski, Flanagan or Bertelli. Just as 
long as they are ours. 

In three weeks your city will be host 
to this strange troupe of Gaelic warriors 
and we think it only fair to warn you 
of their eccentricities. The one most 
vehemently complained about is the 
habit they have of winning. Prior to 
the start of this season they had been 
defeated only 77 times in the 475 games 
that the Irish varsity has played. On 
29 occasions the opposition was able to 
battle the men from South Bend to a 
draw. We hope they will have added 
nine more wins to that record by the 
time they reach Los Angeles. North- 
western and Washington may have other 

Meet Coach Leahy 

And of course the pessimistic Irish- 
man, Frank Leahy, just doesn't know 
how his current squad can be so lucky 
as to win each Saturday. If one listened 
to him too much it wouldn't be out of 
place to believe that had Lujack and 
Co. dared to face them last season, Pas- 
adena J.C. would have smothered the 
Irish in a fashion reminiscent of the fa- 
mous 142-0 Irish win over American 
Medical in 1905. But no wonder he wor- 
ries — Leahy has such a discouraging 
record. Discouraging to other coaches 
that is. In eight years of coaching he 
has lost all of five games — the "Good- 
bye Frank" club will meet in the Sorin 
Hall phone booth tomorrow night. 

O'Neill, Nebraska, supplied Notre 
Dame with its present coach. He is mar- 
ried and has three future linemen and 
two cheer leaders at home, all six are 
carefully managed by Mrs. Leahy, the 
•r Florence Reilly of Brooklyn. 

Leahy is a product of the golden era 
of Notre Dame football when Rockne 
held sway on Cartier Field. He put in 
some assistant coaching time under Jim 
Crowley at Fordham. He moved into the 
head coaching job at Boston College in 
1939 and succeeded Elmer Layden as the 
mentor in 194 1 In six seasons with 
the Irish, including the current one, his

passes that day, but he denies it. "It 






was only about 45," he says. He man- 
aged to collect nine letters in high 
school and is now working on number 
three of the Irish brand. 

President Cites Ex-Marine Martin 

There is no mistaking the blond crew- 
cut and the penetrating eyes of "Jungle 
Jim" Martin as he shuffles across cam- 
pus. The guy is an ex-Marine, and you 
wouldn't have to see him in forest green 
to believe it. He went ashore on a scout- 
ing mission at Tinian the night before 
the rest of his buddies landed and was 
awarded the Presidential Citation for 
the job. Football fans in Cleveland are 
used to seeing Jim at the center slot, but 
the switch to end hasn't hurt his brand 
of ball. He is going to be looking for a 
coaching job after he turns in his mole- 
skins here and has already gotten some 
coaching experience at East Tech high 
school in Cleveland. 

Engineer Hart Catches Passes 

Notre Dame can boast having the best 
balanced flanking combination in Col- 
lege football this year with Martin on 
the portside and a lumbering, black- 
haired fighter from Turtle Creek, Penn- 
sylvania on the starboard wing. Leon 
Hart has already won nine letters for 
high school football, basketball and base 
ball. He is a Junior working for a degree 
in engineering when he isn't busy on 
Cartier Field earning his third Notre 
Dame monogram. He's a glue-fingered 
end and has been able to snatch Trip's 
pitches as easily as he handled Lujack's. 
Leon switches to tackle on defense in 
the Leahy line shift and it's going to be 
difficult for the All-American electors to 
decide which position to give him on 
their team. 

Fallon Doesn't Talk — .lust Tackles 

Coach Leahy was forced to call Jack 
Fallon out of retirement to fill the shoes 
of "Alderman" Czarobski. The big boy 
from Alton, Illinois, may not have the 
gift of gab of the irrepressible Ziggy, but 
his play at right tackle has comforted a 
lot of worried Irish fans. Jack won Irish 
monograms in 1945 and 1946, but a leg 
injury forced him to drop out last year. 
He took over the duties of assistant 
frosh coach while in "retirement". He 
held the university heavyweight boxing 
championship for two years, but relin- 
quished the crown to teammate Jim 
Martin in a pier 6 brawl that was the 
feature of last spring's Bengal Bout fin-

als. Jack is a commerce major and will 
go into the construction business with 
his father upon graduation. 

Brennan Tops Irish Score 

The Galloping Gael from Milwaukee 
(no relation of your northern California 
friends) has fully recovered from the 
knee injury which prevented him from 
performing for you Californians last year. 
We are sure that Jeff Cravath won't be 
cheered by the prospect of having to get 
a defense that can stop Terry Brennan. 
Before being sidelined last season, how- 
ever, he tallied 11 touchdowns to be the 
leading Irish scorer. Emil Sitko was his 
closest rival with 5. Terry's 97 yard run 
against the Army last year was almost 
the spark that destroyed the Notre 
Dame stadium as 58,000 spectators were 
ready to tear it down brick by brick to 
build a fit memorial for the crushed Ar- 
my mule. He is taking a pre-legal course 
at Notre Dame, but will probably take 
the final law courses closer to home at 
Marquette. He plans to enter his father's 
law firm upon graduation. His brother 
Jimmy, another stellar Irish back, will 
join them to make it the triple threat 
legal team in the city that Schlitz made 
famous. Terry is another of the select 
group earning his fourth Notre Dame 
monogram in football. 

Versatility Marks Wendell 

Another member of the four-mono- 
gram winners' club is Chicago's other 
contribution to the first string Irish line, 
Marty Wendell. The squat, bull-necked 
scrapper has earned his letters in th»ee 
different positions. He played fullback in 
1944, center in 1946 and guard in 1947 
and 1948. Only one other Notre Dame 
athlete has pulled this trick, Bernie 
Crimmins, present assistant coach to 
Frank Leahy. Marty's favorite story is 
about the quarterback of a state college 
eleven who called the team together at 
the start of the second half, with state 
trailing by two touchdowns, and led the 
squad in the Hall Mary. State came roar- 
ing back and won going away. But that 
praying had disturbed the star halfback, 
so he cornered the q. b. after the game. 
"What's the idea of leading us in that 
prayer? You're not a Catholic and nei- 
ther are any of the men on the team." 
"Yeah, I know," grinned the q. b 
that's been our best play for two yeai 

Marty is one of the politicians on the 
team having stumped his way into the 
senior class vice-presidency last spring. 

Walsh Captures Center Berth 

While the press have been grooming 
Fischer, Wendell, Martin, Hart, Tripucka 
Brennan, Sitko and Panelli for All-Am- 
erican plaudits, the most underrated man 
on the squad is the husky Irish center 
from Phillipsburg, New Jersey, Bill 
Walsh. He took over the center duties as 
a freshman in 1945 when the capable 
Frank Syzmanski was declared ineligi- 
ble. And just because there has been no 
trouble in that spot, Bill hasn't gotten 
the credit he deserves. He picked up nine 
letters in high school for football, base- 
ball, basketball and track. All-Ameri- 
can George Strohmeyer ousted BUI from 
his starter's job in 1946, but fought back 
and forced ferocious George to take the 
back seat after the Purdue game in 1947. 
Bill is a phys ed major and will also be 
looking for a coaching job when handed 
his sheepskin in January. He will prob- 
ably take home Notre Dame monogram 
number four along with his degree. 

Wrestler McGehee Fills 
All-American Shoes 

The Cartier Field Monday morning 
quarterbacks shook their heads in dis- 
belief when Coach Leahy moved a mem- 
ber of the adhesive tape-and-liniment 
squad up to replace All -American George 
Connor at left tackle. But Ralph McGe- 
hee fooled all the skeptics. He shook off 
the knee injury which had benched him 
during most of the 1947 season and 
showed he had the stuff to fill the ; hoes 
of Connor quite well. And why not, they 
both came down from the Windy City. 
That seems to be recommendation 
enough to get on the Irish squad, but 
.Ralph managed to win three football let- 
ters and one in wrestling at Tilden Tech 
to strengthen his case. The 20-ycar-old 
Chicago boy is 6' 1" and runs the scales 
up to 200 pounds. He is a junior in com- 
merce and, with one more year of eligi- 
bility left, can become another winner of 
four Irish monograms. 

Sitko Sends Opponents to Foxholes 

Among the grid rule changes recom- 
mended last spring was the request that 
Notre Dame opponents be permitted the 
use of foxholes in their defensive back- 
field. The cause of all the worry was 
Emil "Red" Sitko. Ask Mr. Cravath and 
friends, they should remember the 
Wayne Flash quite well. But Coach 
Leahy has reason to remember Emil and 
for much the same reason. It was the 
stubby-legged, bull-necked charger who 
tripped Leahy's 1943 national champs 
by sparking the Great Lakes eleven in 
the upset of the year to spoil an unde- 
feated season for the Irish. The "Tank" 
earned nine letters at Central High 
school in Ft. Wayne and is a cousin of 
a former Irish grid star, Steve Sitko. He 
is the card shark of the squad, but will 
excuse the squad's ignorance of the fine 
points of bridge as long as they remem- 
ber the fine points of blocking so he can 
have plenty of room to run. Emil is a 
junior In physical education, which 
means that if the pro offers don't 
too tempting the Irish will have thi 
top ground gainer for another year. 

Panelli Plays Ball as Prelude to Law 

The people of Morristown, New Jcr.^ 
are convinced they have the only can

They saw John "Pep" Panelli play fo

Skiers Reorganize Club; 
Week End Trips Scheduled 

Again the W.A.A. expands. Eleanor 
Roberts and Adelaide Spuhler have re- 
organized the Mount Ski Club. Already 
members have attended Aspen in Win- 
ter, a picture on skiing in Aspen, Colo. 

Four members, Patricia Riesner, Shir- 
ley Zerkie, Eleanor Roberts, and Adel- 
aide Spuhler, will spend Thanksgiving 
vacation at June Lake speeding down 
the mountain-sides. 

Girls with little or no skiing experience 
may join and accompany the group on 
weekend trips. Competent instructors are 
available at every ski area. 

Spaulding-Crobat Racquets 
Offered by Instructor 

For Mount tennis players, Mr. Al Scott, 
tennis coach, has obtained twenty-four 
Spaulding-Crobat racquets which retail 
for $25. 

The W.A.A. has these racquets for 
$16.80 each, including press and case. 
Anyone interested may contact Mary

California Will Host

lection as the sportswriters voted him the 
state's most valuable prep school griddcr 
while he was attending Cheshire Acad- 
emy. He is a pre-law student and is hav- 
ing no trouble pleading his case for No- 
tre Dame monogram number four. He 
has decided that a couple years in pro 
ball might be necessary for the fledg- 
ling barrister to collect the cold green 
to purchase a law library and a fancy 
shingle. "Pep" was operated on last sum- 
mer to correct a knee injury and conse- 
quently got off to a slow start this year, 
but has been coming up fast. Jackie Jen- 
sen and all other A-A fulback hopefuls 
will get the fight of the year from the 
ramrod from Morristown. 

Now you have been forewarned about 
the midwestern horde. You are going to 
find them an ungrateful lot. They are 
looking forward to the warm California 
hospitality which you have alwo 
tended to them— but they are still going 
to trounce the local eleven. They haven't 
got Livingstone or Lujack, and Connor 
and Czarobski are among the missing. 
But they have Tripucka and Sitko and a 
couple of fellows named Hart and Mar- 
tin. They won't need any wooden horse 
to capture the halls of troy— they might 
not even need the double quarterback. 
The score? Oh, let's try Notre Dame 35, 
U.S.C. 12. but don't bet on it. 

New Students Cite 
Hobbies and Peeves 

A woman of fine tastes is Ellen Ann 
Sydow. Her major is dietetics. Ellen raves 
about the "beautiful campus", and feels 
very much at home in the "general spirit 
of friendliness" she finds here. 

Now a junior, Ellen is a transfer from 
L.A.C.C. where she was active in Red 
Cross and in the Home Economics Soror- 

When asked her pet peeve, Ellen re- 
plied, "Men!" and to think that Ellen 
was born in June, the month of brides. 
How to recognize her? By that long, 
blond hair, and . . . that re e e e ed coat! 
Born to travel is Natalie Neff. a Junior 
and a transfer from U.S.C. where she 
was president of the sophomore Wom- 
an's Council. 

At the advanced age of five days Na- 
talie and family moved to Jackson, Mis- 
sissippi, where they remained for ten 
years. Returning to Los Angeles, Natalie 
boarded at Marymount, Santa Barbara. 
Now living on a ranch, "Skeeter" 
raises horses as a hobby. She is nick- 
named Skeeter because a teacher once 
told her she doesn't look like a "Nat" 
but like a mosquito. 

Bob Reed's ring adorns the third fin- 
ger of her left hand. He is a naval officer 
and graduate of U.S.C, and at Harvard 
he obtained his master's and doctor's 

How does she feel about the Mount? 
"I love it here", says Nat. 

Jackie Valentine is a new junior from 
Sebastopol (near San Francisco). She 
was president of Associated Women 
Students at Santa Rosa Junior College. 
Jackie is engaged to a Cal Tech man 
and plans to be married this summer. 
Her pet peeve, Cal Tech's homework, in- 
terferes with her concentration on house 
planning and finding new recipes for 
her favorite food — abalone. 

Junior Marie Russoman is a transfer 
from UCLA where she was workshop 
head at Dance Theater. A group major 
but interested in interpretative dance, 
Marie can be heard remarking that she 
wishes the brains in her feet would go 
to her head. Right now her main occupa- 
tion is moving, which may have some- 
thing to do with her pet peeve — land- 

Audrey Telley also comes from UCLA. 
She's a group major and holds a rare 
status at the Mount, that of a high 
sophomore. Audrey works at Bullock's 
Wilshire in the Collegiene department, 
where she keeps up with the fashions. 
Her pet peeve is MEN DRIVERS.

This season the volleyball varsity has 
been victorious. The Mount defeated St. 
Mary's Academy 21-41 and 21-18 in the 
games played on their courts and 21-11 
and 21-16 in games played on campus. 
Peggy Scott and Lupita Bernstein were

high school, Marymount College and U- 
CLA are being settled. 

In both the intramural and doubles 
tournaments on campus round 1 is being 
completed this week with results posted 
in St. Joseph's Hall. 

New faces are constantly being seen 
on the volleyball court. Some of the lat-

The HOME EC-ho 

The dining room table is the center of 
family life, and its pleasant appearance 
begins with an attractive covering. Your 
selections may be either the traditional 
white, or pastel colors in damask. In- 
formal cloths may be in prints, checks, 
or plaids; but aim for variety and weara- 
bility in whatever you choose. 

Linen, cotton, and rayon are the fibers 
commonly used in making "table linens." 
Linen, of course, is the most desirable. 
Its luster is higher than cotton and low- 
er than rayon; its wearing qualities are 
excellent, and the more it is used, the 
better it looks. Its relatively high price 
is balanced by these qualities. 

Cotton, though not so beautiful as 
linen, makes well-wearing informal 
cloths. Rayon fibers are used principally 
for damask, a firm, glossy-patterned 
fabric of a single color. Damasks are 
woven with longer "floats" in specified 
places giving them a high gloss and de- 
termining the pattern. Rayon fiber has 
a high natural luster easily distinguish- 
able. Its use has been greatly increased 
since Its combination with linen and 

(arc of Clothes 

When the budget for hope chest linens 
is limited, the following list of minimum 
items should be helpful: 

1. One three-yard formal damask din- 
ner cloth with 12 napkins. 

2. Two luncheon cloths with napkins 
for each In pastel or print. 

3. Two gaily colored breakfast cloths. 

4. Two bridge cloths, card table size, 
with four napkins for each. 

The care of linens is relatively simple. 
Any pure linen should be stored in dark 
paper so that light will not turn it yel- 
low. The fewer folds, the better appear- 
ance; so if possible roll linens on a cyl- 
inder to prevent crushing and unneces- 
sary creasing. Stack napkins in sets to 
keep them fresh and easily accessible. 

Remember these few important facts 
when laundering. Always wash new lin- 
ens before using. With used cloths re- 
move all stains before washing to pre- 
vent "setting." Because linen fiber Is 
stiff in itself, starch is unnecessary. Nor 
is it needed in rayon cloths because the 
soft, graceful cloth Is more attractive. 

Ahoy! Mateys. The boat is putting out 
to sea with a cargo of worthless 
thoughts and mottled gabble. When the 
witches flew and the goblins roared, 
Eloise Martinez did her part as a mys- 
terious Cleopatra. Angie McDonald posed 
as a noble Indian maid. (Looked more 
like a squaw, heh ? ) At the UCLA New- 
man Club frolic Shiela Lanigan did some

twin is the Toni?", or is it Hudnut? 
Anyway it looks muy good. 


To put it tritely, "It doesn't rain but

determine the name of the new Ford 
turtle. Green Beetle, Queenie, and Glug 
have been rejected thus far. 

A Double Life 

The amazing similarity of the sisters 
Galen, Ruth and Barbara, is downright 
indecent. It robs you of every vestige of 
self respect. How are you going to 
know? I hereby move that they should 
adopt some distinguishing mark. Maybe 
a rose draped from the teeth a la Car- 
men or a tattoo or a red feather. 

Fiddle Faddle 

To Gerry Biggs goes our book Phi-

achieving the impossible — missing only 
one question in Father Vaughan's ct ! 

We hereby strongly protest the ap- 
pearance of closely shaven heads and 
bowl haircuts. Honestly, kiddies, don't 
you know that your hair is your "crown- 
ing glory," that is if you use Prell, Vel, 
or Gell. Sporting the newly cropped lids 
are Ellen Murphy and Beverly Halpin. 
Barbara Barnes, getting scissor happy, 
snipped off more of the encircling veg- 
etation and now looks like a freshly har- 
vested field. From all reports the new 
sparse look saves time: no washing, no 
combing, no brushing, no weight. How 
far can emancipation get? 

Rare Gems

Charlotte Aguiar feels very proud of 
her father who has just been elected to

island, Kauai. 

Approbation, pats-on-the-back. and 
things to the bright children who 
thought of the Upsilon Tau Sigma tea 
given for hill-bound boarders one Sun-

An irate boarder has asked me to 
print the name of Jeanne Kingston pub- 
licly and demand that she desist in her 
diurnal announcements of choir practice. 
Seems she's been at it since September. 

Too often has the reader found when 
interest has lagged that many a column 
which has been bound should also have

Here's a hint that may help George 
Gallup and his "buddy" pollsters. At 
Mount St. Clare in Clinton, Iowa, Presi- 
dent Truman blitzkrieged Thomas Dewey 
by gathering a triumphal fifty-two votes 
to the GOP candidate's twenty-four. 
Seems the Demos took several other col-

reason for the upset? 

Cooperation Plus 

From Emmitsburg, Maryland come 
two college publications, the Valley Echo 
and the Mountain Echo. The Valley Echo 
is published by the students of Saint 
Joseph's College and the Mountain Echo 
comes from Mount St. Mary's College, 
no less. This Mount St. Mary's has a 
football team though.

The Hcightsonian News published an 
article recently telling of a gift of $10,000 
to the nursing program at the college. 
It was presented to the college by a Colo-

factor in order to help finance the first 
year of the new nursing program In- 
augurated at Loretto Heights College.

At Sacramento Jaycec Alfred Noyes,

Evening Prayer of a Communist 

Thank you, Lenin, for keeping us under your protection this day. Thank you 
for guiding our minds and hearts and strengthening our resolves. Punish all 
weaklings and traitors and protect us from Msgr. Fulton Sheen. But most of all 
keep young Catholics apathetic. Don't let them au)ake from their false dream- 
world of security. Don't let them heed the signs of danger to their complacent 
existence. Don't let them think deeply or listen to those who flee the lands we 
protect. Don't let them hear about the man and wife we crucified upside down 
to the gate of their castle in Germany. Keep them from being aroused to defend 
our only enemy — Their Faith. Help us destroy Truth through Josef Stalin, thy 
disciple, our leader, who livest and reignest world without God. AMEN 

Do Today — Lead Tomorrow 

Suppose you have a dynamic idea for selling play tickets, or a new way to 
raise money for your club. Ideas are important. But, more important is somebody 
to be responsible for getting the work done. 

■ You say you would be glad to work on the project? You just don't want to be 
responsible. Well, somebody has to, and, since you had the idea, it might as well 
be you. 

Let's look at this thing from a different angle. Suppose you haven't any spec- 
tacular ideas. There's some dull job that has to get done. It's just as important as 
other jobs, but nobody wants it because it isn't a bit exciting. Why don't you take 
it? It's that type of job that fits you for life after you leave college. 

You are not a contributing member of your organization if you won't take 
responsibility once in a while. And you're not a good citizen if you don't contribute 
to as well as benefit from society. 

To Pledge or Not . . . 

Rushees and Non-Rushees Faced with Problems 

The strain of rushing is beginning to tell on the freshmen. One rushee was 
wailing, "What to do, what to do? I know I'll make the wrong decision and be 
sorry later." A quick reply from another depressed freshman was, "I can't feel 
sorry for you because my situation is worse; I didn't get asked at all." The View 
would like to add a few pertinent thoughts from girls both in and out of sororities. 

We start with remarks from a graduate 


"Four years in a sorority at the Mount 
are the basis for my remarks — take 
them for what you will. The sorority 
adds another item to your budget. 
Pledge fees, dues, and a pin (not re- 
quired) all add up. The pin is nice to 
wear as jewelry, but you can't always 
wear it when you go out because many 
men do not approve of sororities nor do 
they think much of a local sorority. 

So you weren't included on the "rush" 
list What a blow to your pride! Why? 
It means one of t;wo things. Either you 
were not well enough acquainted with 
someone on the inside or if you were, 
she had friends even closer than you 
that she wanted rushed.

man but I couldn't have afforded it any-

A junior 

"When a new student becomes aware 
that sororities exist at the Mount, she 
is likely to think that belonging to one 
of them is a must. But after becoming 
truly acquainted with the Mount, she 
will see that there is no discrimination 
in the attitude of the girls toward one 
another Actually the primary reason for 
joining a sorority is purely social. It is 
fun to go to the meetings and parties, 
and to get to know the girls better, but 
all this can t hod outside a

Stir Up Our Hearts, Lord 

Making novenas is well and good, but 
the importance of living with the liturgy, 
especially before Christmas, cannot be 
overemphasized. It is hard for us, at 
times, to realize that God-becomc-man is 
the pivot of our religion. As we realize 
this truth, however, our Christianity be- 
comes a living thing supported by the 
hand of God Himself. 

As we follow our missals Sunday after 
Sunday we miss much of the continuity 
of the beautiful passages of preparation. 
The advent liturgy shows anticipation 
gradually building up until Christmas 
Day bursts upon us. 

For example — on the first Sunday of 
Advent we beg for God's mercy. 

Bestir, O Lord, Thy might, we pray 
Thee and come. May we receive Thy 
mercy, O Lord, that with due reverence 
we may prepare for the coming festival 
of our redemption. 

On the second Sunday of Advent we 
ask Him to stir our hearts. 

Behold the Lord shall come to save 
the nations. Stir up our hearts, O L 
to prepare the says of Thine only-be- 
gotten Son. 

The third Sunday of Advent is a time

Boarders Anxiously Await Holidays, First Visits; 
Many Look Forward to White Christmas at Home 

The HOME EC-ho 



The season of mistletoe and holly, 
fruit cake and cookies, good will and 
joy, pine trees and candles, carols and 
hymns, is upon us. And welcome too. 
With the gong of classes still lingering 
in the air our scholars cast off books 
and scamper for the highways and by- 
ways. The greatest migration seems to 
be that city by the sea, San Diego, 
which calls home Gloria Padilla and her 
giggly roommate Anne Wong, Rita Cus- 
tado ... a few steps over to Coronado, 
Connie Rodee, Mousie Trounce leaving 
Ray for La Jolla, Dolores Manning, 
Mary Anita McGowan, Eileen Micklish, 
Doris Haulman, Eleanor Ascherfeld, and 
"Mac" Connors. 

Yule Fuel 

Schwabacher's Christmas rush will be 
eased by Muriclle Mahoney's artistic 
presence; Helen Czandy (rhymes with 
Sunday) is doing time at the Broadway 
Crenshaw; Joann Musumeci at Bullock's 
again; and Mary Connolly at Robinson's 
still. Margaret Delavigne will be seen 
fondling books at the public library. 

The Murphy's, Pat and Joan, set out 
on the slow boat to Klamath Falls. 
Pat Johnson with unrepressed glee winds 
her way back to the grapes and frost 
of Fresno. 

The Mark of the Shamrock 
The game between Troy and the Irish 
will have tongues wagging for many 
weeks. Also the ubiquitous Irish huskies 
(how did they get to all those places 
at once?) have left their jolly memory. 
'The Moose" and "Scooter" and "Singin' 
Sully" will have their niche in the halls 
of time. Many a friendship was made 
and lost that day. Seen tearing their 
wringing their hands, chewing their 
nails, moaning, leaping, screaming, pray- 
ing, and shrieking at the pigskin classic 
were: "Doc" Buckley, Mary Margaret

The Crow 

"I'm going home for Christmas." 
Whee! Eager Mount students away from 
home for the past three months have 
been anticipating Christmas vacation 
since the beginning of school. 

Mount boarders have been packed for 
days with train tickets in hand and a 
yearning for mother's home-cooked 

The Galens, Barbara and Spud, will 
arrive in Missoula, Montana, for Spud's 
first visit home in time to celebrate Bar- 
bara's 19th birthday. They intend two 
weeks at play in the deep Montana snow 
and, perhaps, see Donald. 

After patiently counting the days be- 
fore vacation, Rita McDonough will fly 
home to Galveston in the "republic" of 
Texas. She's just looking forward to a 
good time. 
Ellen Dreams of Skis 

Ellen Murphy, the girl from Dubuque 
and not Des Moines, dreams of skiing, 
sleigh-riding, ice skating, dancing, and 
John. Of course, she's spending the first 
two days with her mother! 

Pat Conlan is being admitted into Ne- 
vada and will go home to Fallon. This 
time her sister Colleen will accompany 
her to see that she arrives home safe. 

Jeannine Carter, who hasn't been home 
for four months, misses her family and 
the snow. She will see both of these when 
she spends Christmas at home in Den- 

ver, Colorado. 

Trip Brings Fashion Problem 

This Christmas again finds Rita Glo- 
ria Murray at home in Chicago. She is 
thankful for the extended vacation, en- 
abling her to spend more days in the 
windy city. Her problem is whether to 
buy a winter coat — she needs one for 
the Chicago weather, but in sunny Cali- 
fornia ? 

Leonlta Browne and Cathy Edwards 
live in not-too -far-away Arizona and will 
be off to Phoenix and Tucson respective- 
ly. Leonita looks forward mostly to see- 
ing her Dad who has been in Michigan. 
In January, she will receive a long 
awaited New Year present in the form 
of her soldier brother, whom she has not 
seen for two years, returning from Tri- 
este. Needless to say, Cathy is also hap- 
py to be going home again. "Ducky, 
simply ducky!" she commented. 
Snow Awaits Callfornian 

Fall River, Mills is in California, but 
Orise Felght has not been home since 
the start of school. She claims that 850 
miles is too far to travel. Fourteen inches 
of snow await her when she gets home 
this week. 

Sally Lovelace hoped to spend her va- 
cation at home in Honolulu, but will have 
to be content with San Diego. She will 
visit her alma mater, Our Lady of Peace 

Students From China, South America, Hawaii 
Find Substitutes for Christmas at Home 

All over the United States college stu- 
dents are awaiting Christmas vacation at 
home with their families. In the midst 
of their excitement few think of a mi- 
nority of students who come thousands 
of miles to school in the United States; 
some can look forward to going home in 
the summer; others have four years of 
education to complete before ever seeing 
home again. 

At Mount St. Mary's, the students who 
spend Christmas away from home each 
year include girls from China, South 
America, and a band of Hawaiian-Amer- 
icans from the land of sunshine and hula. 
Yunan Revolution Celebrated 

Roommates Mary Ann Lu and Mei Lee 
haven't been home in Shanghai and 
Hongkong for a number of years now, 
but they recall the Christmas celebration 
there. December 25 is a holiday in 
China, but not to commemorate the 
birth of Christ. The day is set aside as 
a national holiday celebrating the rev- 
olution at Yunan, one of the important 
events in the establishment of the Chi- 
nese Republic under Dr. Sun-Yat-Sen. 

The western influence has brought a 
commercialized spirit of Christmas to 
China, with stores displaying colorful 
Christmas decorations. 

Far from being entirely pagan, China 
has many Christians who celebrate the 
birth of Christ In the true spirit. Mary 
Ann Lu recalls as most beautiful, Mid- 
night Mass with her family the first year 
after the war. They had a Christmas 
tree and celebrated her brother's birth- 
day. Today both Mary Ann and Mei Lee 
are not sure where their families are. 

They will be in America again this 
Christmas and may go to San Francisco 
for the holidays. 
Appendectomy Scheduled 

Lillian and Catherine Lu from Shang- 
hai have been at the Mount since last 
year. This Christmas Lillian will spend 
her vacation at Queen of Angels Hos- 
pital having her appendix femoved. 
Catherine intends to keep her sister 
company as often as possible. 

Pauline Chang, also from Shanghai, 
will be off to Big Bear with some of the 
Hawaiians, Clara and Vera Wong, Cyn- 
thia Luke, Luella Lum, and Betty Jane 
Flores for their first taste of snow. 

Among the other "Kanakas," Bernie 
Gouveia plans to go on a first trip to 
Oakland, and Marilyn Yee and Anne 
Wong, finally giving up the idea of 
swimming home, insist they're going to 
live In the public library doing ethics. 
"Posadas" Missed 

In many points south, Mexcio City, 
Panama and Nicaragua, the traditional 
"Posadas" celebration commemorating 
the Blessed Virgin In her search for 
lodging before the birth of Christ has 
already begun. Four "senoritas" at the 
Mount, Estela Rivera, Olga Stadhagen, 
Maria Christina Altamlrano and Helen 
Peck, haven't been home for this cele- 
bration for a number of years. Estela 
and Olga will go home after graduation 
In June but have no special plans for 
this Christmas in Los Angeles. 

The deepest thought among all Mount 
students from far-away lands Is a wish 
to be at home with their families on 
Christmas for a day of rejoicing and 
thanksgiving among their loved ones.

". . . while visions of sugar plums 
danced in their heads . . ." 

Some of the colorful customs of other 
lands have become a part of our own 
Christmas in America. There is always 
room for a new note. Here are some 
ideas for turning sugar plums into vis- 

An original trimming for the turkey 
is cranberry jelly moulded in two layer- 
cake pans. Spread green-tinted cream 
cheese and chopped nuts between the 
layers. Serve in thin wedges. For sparkle 
scatter crushed red and green hard can- 
dies over holiday desserts. On vanilla 
ice cream the effect is startling. For a 
New Year's party, crush multi-colored 
candies to obtain the confetti look. 

Everyone loves to make "sweets 'n 
stuff" to decorate the tree. Why not 
try something new in the popcorn balls 
and traditional many shaped cookies? 
Add chopped cherries to the cookie bat- 
ter, and half a cup of the same to the 
popcorn ball syrup. Wrap in green cello- 
phane and hang with red ribbon bows. 

Ever glamorize an ice cube? Try a 
maraschino cherry with a mint leaf in 
each section of the freezing tray. 

We love to anticipate the blessings of 
the Christ Child, of home, and of family 
fun — but for more and deeper happiness 
let's remember those who are not so 
fortunate. The Home Economics Depart- 
ment wishes each member of the fac- 
ulty and student body a very merry and 
happy Christmas.

Families Celebrate 
With Varied Customs 

Betty Parker's brother Joe has played 
Santa Claus every Christmas for the last 
ten years. He's sixteen now. In Connie 
Rodee's house everybody hangs up a 
stocking. It has to be this way, else the 
younger members wouldn't believe in 
Santa Claus. The real problem is getting 
the children to bed so that the re 
the family can decorate the tree. All nine 
members of the family hear Mass to- 
gether on Christmas morning. Opening 
presents before Mass is strictly against 
family regulations. The family cat — 
"Bishumbash" is an honored guest at all 

i 1. 1 .mi. i ii Customs Observed 

Dolores Welgoss celebrates Christmas 
according to Ukranian custom. On 
Christmas eve, a candle blessed at Eas- 
ter is placed on the table. No butter, milk, 
cheese or meat is served, and all food is 
prepared with oil. It is the custom to 
taste everything which is on the table. 
JUolores finds this custom distasteful 
since she doosn't like mushrooms which 
are always served. Garlic is eaten to 
give strength for the coming year. Girls 
place a drop of honey on their fnreheiid: 
to keep them sweet throughout the year. 
Rice Is always served with honey. Honey 
is also used to sweeten the tea, since no 
sugar is eaten on this day. Formerly, 
straw was put under the table for the 
children to play with. The family fasts 
all day until supper time Christmas eve. 
After supper, Dolores' father leads thi 
family in singing Ukranian Christmas 
carols. On Christmas morning it Is cus- 
tomary to wash with money which rep- 
resents the gold and silver gifts present- 
ed to Christ. It Is considered lucky to 
have a boy visit on Christmas morning 
Dolores' uncle sends his son to visit hei 

Santa Blngi Doorbell 

Alice Knwmer'M family have develop- 
ed Christmas customs for people with 
no chimney. Santa Claus stops his sleigh 
at the front door, ami jingles his 1" 
They always get to the door too late tx 
cause reindeer are such fast animals, 
but presents are left on the porch. Carol-

Christmas Once Forbidden in United States; 
While Wit Endowed to Daughters Born Then 

The celebration of the feast of Christ- 
mas was once forbidden by law both in 
this country and in England. In 1644 
Parliament officially abolished Christ- 
mas from England. In later years the 
Puritans of Massachusetts passed this 
measure; "Whosoever shall be found ob- 
serving any such day as Christmas ei- 
ther by forbearing of labor, or feasting 
in any other way, shall be fined five 

Holly Bearer Rules 

There is a superstition in parts of the 
country that whoever brings the Christ- 
mas holly into the house first, husband 
or wife, shall be the one to rule the com- 
ing year. Imagine the scramble this must 

In Yorkshire, it's the men first on 
Christmas morn. They believe that wo- 
men entering the house first on Christ- 
mas morning bring ill fortune — a man 
or boy will bring good fortune. 

Trinkets on the Christmas tree come 
from the Roman custom of hanging 
masks of Bacchus on trees and vines to 
give them fertility. 

Merry Egomas Day! 

Often today the sign, "Merry Xmas" 
is posted inside store windows. "Christ 
has been replaced by "X" — the unknown. 
But then perhaps, in saying "Merry 
Xmas", we are becoming less hypocriti- 
cal. For it is tragically funny to hear the 
divorcee, the murderer, the thief, the 
crooked politician say "Merry Christ- 
mas." The million dollar question is what 
does "X" stand for? Wealth? Power? Po- 
sition? Or the overdone ego? Merry 
Egomas Day! The person who discovers 
that 'X" in Greek is the first letter in the 
name "Christ" has found the answer. 

— Alice Kraemer. 

The first Christmas card was a litho- 
graph sent by one of Queen Victoria's 
favorite painters, W. C. Dobson, to his 
friends, back in 1845. The next year, Sir 
Henry Cole, who found himself too busy 
to write Christmas letters to his friends, 
asked John Calcott Horsley to get up a 
card for him to send instead. Horsley's 
card, was condemned by temperance ad- 
vocates. Because of this advertisement, 
practically everyone was sending Christ- 
mas cards by 1847. 

Scots Consult Pigs 

In Scotland it is customary to visit 
the barns on Christmas Eve and there 
say a prayer to safeguard the animals. A 
girl in search of a husband should knock 
loudly on the pigsty door. If a gTeat hog 
grunts in reply, her predestined husband 
will be an old man; If it's a little pig, it 
gives the promise of a young man. 

One superstition holds that a boy born 
on Christmas Day will be either a law- 
yer or a thief when he grows up. The 
French think daughters born on that 
day are endowed with particular gifts 
of wit and virtue. — Gerry Biggs

When shadows fell across the snow 
In Bethlehem of long ago, 
Two seeking shelter from the cold 
Were turned away for lack of gold; 
They wandered to a hillside cave, 
And there was born the Holy Babe. 

If I had been there long ago 
When shadows fell across the snow, 
Would I have helped the Holy Pair 
Find shelter from the winter air ? 
Or would I, like those others, hold 
A higher store by things of gold ?

Notre Dame would defeat Northwestern

As a three time winner of the award

be entitled to permanent possession of

Drop Dead, America! 

"The Myths upon which our social 
norms are based" is the subject of Ye 
Gods by Ed Willock. Romance, Efficien- 
cy, Glamour, The Regular Guy, Luck, 
and Speed are among America's house- 
hold gods which are desecrated by the 
author. "The citizen who thinks it fine 
to be able to call the President of the 
United States 'Harry' " and the numer- 
ous "ways of peeling potatoes (or avoid- 
ing peeling potatoes)" are two objects of 
the author's scorn. 

Ed Willock strolls down the path of 
satire that Waugh, Leacock, Perelman, 
Benchley, and others have raced down. 
His style is one of his favorite words — 
logical. He gives the impression that 
neatness and order are the only points 
of technique which interest him. — 
Strictly utilitarian. 

In my estimation Ed Willock fails to 
provide the stirring challenge that Peter 
Michaels did in Designs For Christian 
Living. Perhaps Mr. Willock should take 
lessons in the art of dynamiting readers 
from the latter. Willock, unlike Mich- 
aels, generalizes and neglects to present 
more than a theoretical solution for our 
decadent social system. 

The author's illustrations arc Thurber- 
esquc. Willock accomplishes in a few 
;os of his brush what his pen took 
150 pages to say. The 24 caricatures are 
self-explanatory; he needn't have written 
a word.

SWES Carol and Host 
Parties over Holidays 

SWES members spent a busy holiday 
season carrying out a main function of 
the club, giving service to the less fortu- 
nate. They caroled for the patients at 
the convalescent home of the Brothers 
of Saint John and gave them candy and 
festive booklets containing the carols 

The Settlement Committee of SWES 
participated in a Christmas party for 
200 needy children at Pacoima Settle- 
ment house. Through donations from 
Mount students, the committee, Celine 
Freitas, Joan McNulty and Carol Galla- 
gher, served cupcakes and ice cream for 
all the children. 

Members of SWES sang at midnight 
Mass in the chapel of Brothers of St. 
John of God. This was the first time that 
many of the girls had attended a mid- 
night mass. Dr. Juan Aguilar of the 
music department accompanied the choir 
on the organ.

ebrated the first anniversary of Mount 
Saint Mary's as a coeducational college

Norwegian School Plans 
Special Summer Courses 
For American Students 

The University of Oslo has announced 
that it will again hold special classes for 
American students from June 27 to Aug- 
ust 6. 

Official headquarters in America for 
the summer session has been established 
at St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minne- 
sota, where catalogs and applications 
may be secured. 

The courses which will be conducted in 
English, cover the sciences, the humani- 
ties, and a general survey of Norwegian 
culture. A maximum of six credit hours 
may be taken in the six weeks course 
and in most cases the credits are trans- 

Alumnae of the department who at- 
tended were Misses Margaret Hlastala 
Pearl Butier and Winifred Yurich Stu- 
dents of the department alumnae and 
guests enjoyed songs around the fire, re- 
ports from alumnae who are employed

Approximate expense for the six weeks 
at the University is estimated to be 
about $300 and transportation last year 
on the "S.S. Marine Jumper" came to 
$320 to $400 for the round trip. 

This is the third year that such a 
course for Americans has been offered. 
An American Dean of Students, Norman

Minn., has accompanied the students 
each year. The rest of the administration 
is Norwegian. President of the Summer

Night at the Mount 
Features Top Movie 
Entertainers, Singers 

Sunday night Mount students, their 
families and friends were entertained at 
"Night at the Mount." an annual affair 
to raise funds for the college year book. 

Activity from 5:30 to 7:30 centered 
around various bazaar booths in the So- 
cial Hall. At 7:30 professional entertain- 
ment was provided by such headliners 
as Roddy MacDowell. Richard Long, 
Marshall Thompson. Harry Brown, Pat 
O'Brien, with Paul Picerru as master of 

This is Mr. O'Brien's second appear- 
ance at a Night at the Mount and the 
second time his genial wit has enter- 
tained an appreciative audience. 

Advance Tennis Class Girls' Swim Team Formed 

Prepares for Match 

In preparation for the annual Wom- 
en's Tennis Tournament at Ojai in the 
Spring, the Mount's nine most advanced 
players are holding a tournament among 
themselves to determine the best quali- 

The girls are W. A. A. Prexy Mary 
Beth Baca, Vice President Mel Likens, 
Secretary Barbara O'Callahan, Treasurer 
Rita Custado and student tennis teach- 
ers Huguette Hery. Mary Alice Connors, 
Yvonne Mazy and Lupita Bernstein. The 
only frosh representative is Margaret 
Ann Czueleger. 

Only four players may attend — two 
singles and one set of doubles. The best 
tennis players of Southern California 
compete in this tournament every year. 
Mount players have been competing for 
the last several years, and each year 
they have reached the quarter finals. 

Invitations have also been sent out 
by the W.A.A. to the colleges of South- 
ern California asking them to partici- 
pate in matches here or on their courts. 

As Pool Fund Nears Quota 

Now that the fund for the Mount pool 
has almost reached the half-way mark, 
plans are being made for the formation 
of a swimming team. Through Mr. A. P. 
Scott eight Mount girls will have access 
to the pool at the Bel-Air Hotel. Com- 
mencing in February the girls, headed 
by Soph June McLaren, will be able 
to swim twice weekly to train for a 
team. Later in the spring they "will com- 
pete in meets with local schools. 

Ping-Pong Tournaments 
Begin with New Semester 

This semester special attention is cen- 
tering on the more individual sports 
such as tennis and ping-pong. Rita Cus- 
tado heads the tournaments to be held 
in both sports. Papers are posted and 
all who are willing and interested are 
asked to sign up early so that the 
games may start immediately after sem- 
ester holidays. For the benefit of any 
ping-pong enthusiasts who may be un- 
aware of it, two ping-pong tables are 
located at the far end of the basketball 
court, and the equipment is available 
to everyone from Rita Custado or Mary 
Beth Baca. On Field Day in April, the 
final play-offs in singles and doubles 
of both sports will be one of the main 
attractions. Trophies will be awarded 
on Mary's Day to the champions of 
both events. 

Record Snowfall 
Spurs Winter Sports 

Last week's record snowfall brought a 
new sport to the Mount. Snowball took 
immediate precedence over volleyball and 
basketball. Anne Wong, Kathleen O'- 
, Rourke, Eileen Micklish and Mary Lou 
Hart were only a few of the girls who 
proved to be living targets for the bar- 
rage of snowballs that flew across the 

The hearts of the ski-lovers were also 
filled with joy. Although their Christmas 
vacation in the High Sierras seemed un- 
surpassable at the time, Eleanor Roberts 
Mary Yurich, Pat Riesner, Adelaide 
Spuhler, and Shirley Zerkie are antici- 
pating week-end skiing for several 
months yet this year. 

WAA Proclaims Champs 
In Two Major Activities 

The pre-Christmas weeks closed sev- 
eral tournaments on campus. In the In- 
tramural competition the class of '51 
again was acclaimed as the champion 
team. However, it was the senior team 
who almost ruined the record losing by 
only two points. 

In the individual competition in the 
advanced fencing class, Yvonne Mazy 
defeated Barbara O'Callaghan by two 
touches in the championship bout. Mr. 
Heremans awarded her a foil to keep as 
a trophy.

Little Stories Show 
Hidden Humor in 
Life at the Mount 

Here and there, amusing things have 
happened to Mount girls. Capers over 
vacation, prizes, a gone-girl, and middle 
west snows combined here to give the 
readers a chuckle. 

Mary Jane Orr made the Cottonwood 
Chronicle twice in one issue. Her only 
complaint: "Do they always have to call 
it Mount St. Mary's Girls College?" 

Boarders enjoyed the Sophomores So- 
cial Night. All dressed in class colors. 
Especially notable were glamor girls. 
Estelle Zehngebot and Mahlyn Wetzel 
also known as the Jockey-ettes. . . Alice 
Kraemer, Joan Storkan, and Jeanne 
Frye upheld the reputation of the class 
of fifty. Dorothy, "the songbird of the 
southwest" O'Hara had the audience in 
tears with her rendition of "It's Tragic" 
but the Sophs stole the show with that 
chorus line ! 

Cla*". Shows Talent 
The intermediate German class may 
not be brilliant linguists, but they do 
have domestic talents. All four, Pat Ries- 
ner. Barbara Galen, Eleanor Roberts, 
and Betsy Knleriem arrived- at class in 
hand-knit sweaters last Thursday. 

Pat Murphy and Carol Gallagher cap- 
tured the prize for the nicest table ar- 
rangement in the annual Home Econom- 
ics contest. The prizes were awarded by 
Sr. Marguerite at a pre-Christmas party 

which one Junior English major man- 
aged to crash. 

Boarders who intended to come back 
from vacation en masse on January 3 
dribbled in one at a time. The Galens, 
Barbara and Spud, arrived only a day 
late from Missoula, Montana, the cold- 
est spot in the country. Ellen Murphy, 
Jeanine Carter, and Terry Phelps arrived 
four days late. Ellen, way back from 
Dubuque, was stranded in Jeannine's 
home town, Denver, while it took Terry 
seven days to fly here from North Da- 
kota. Joan Storkan was snowbound for 
thirty hours in Colorado on her way back 
from a family reunion in Nebraska and 
Mary Kay Thompson arrived seven days 
late from a trip to Indiana. 

Ex-View fashion columnist, Gen. Wee- 
ger will be married February 19. We un- 
derstand "Honeydew" has spent the last 
semester at I H C as a day-hop. 


Mackin iKayj— Miss Mary Kathleen 
Mackin, of 556 Douglas Street, Pasadena 
California, departed from our midst dur- 
ing Christmas holidays for the Happy 
Hunting Grounds of the Stanford Indi- 
ans. She was bom in Freshman English 
class and spent most of her second child 
hood in the VIEW office, amassing hon-

Student to Student 

The Catholic colleges and schools of nursing the Los Angeles region turned over 
the following amounts to the NFCCS at the conclusion of last year's Student Relief 

Loyol3 $7242.52 

Marymount 1000.00 

Immaculate Heart 750.00 

Mount Saint Mary's. 390.00 

St, Vincent's _ 134.50 

Queen of Angels 128.50 

This total of $9695.52 is very unimpressive when compared with the single con- 
tribution of §32,000 from Notre Dame University. The pitiful sum of $390 was the 
result of the efforts of the students of Mount Saint Mary's College. Half-hearted 
cooperation combined with selfishness and indifference netted an average of approxi- 
mately $1.00 per girl. 

The statement quoted below is part of a typical letter of appreciation from 
students abroad. 

"To you, Catholic College Students of America, we say thank you, from tin- 
bottom of our hearts. In a truly wonderful way you havp made our interests 
your own. The good will manifested by your generosity has given us spiritual 
consolation richer even than the material aid itself. . . . You can be certain that 
your outstretched hand has brought us untold comfort. . . ." 

Shouldn't we be thoroughly ashamed of ourselves ? We don't deserve that praise 

and thanks. We didn't manifest any "generosity." One dollar per person is not an 

"outstretched hand." We may have extended an arm, but the fist was tightly closed. 

From the same letter comes a statement that should make your consciences 

smart even more. 

"We are told that you study in conditions undreamed of here. We are happy, 
and thank God for your good fortune." 

THEY thank God for OUR good fortune. They thank Him, but we don't! In 
return for our blessings we don't bother about helping them in their hunger and 

Thank God not all young Catholics in the country failed in their duty. Manor 
College, Philadelphia, with an enrollment of ten, contributed $588.50 — $58.50 a stu- 
dent. The dynamic spirit of these and many others saved the drive from the failure 
which would have occurred if everyone had responded as we did. 

This year's drive is half over. There are still going to be plenty of reminders 
and plenty of ways you can contribute. Sell your books of chances on the Mercury; 
put your ice cream money into the relief fund; get out and work. Let's think of 
someone besides ourselves for a change! 

There's always talk about the "joy of giving." Lots of us really can't feel too 
joyful when our dimes go to help a starving girl in Germany instead of into buying 
a chocolate cone. You don't have to bubble; you don't have to have the sainted 
expression that occasionally accompanies a good deed: you don't even have to like 
giving up your money (Who does?). The "joy of giving" will come when you dis- 
cover at some future time that charity has balanced your sins in the Heavenly 

Above all, let's reinstate the Mount's name for cooperation. We have reason to 
be proud of the NFCCS. Let's make the NFCCS proud of us.

The snow scene on the Family Digest

to "brush fear and pain away, as well 
as dust." 

If you just don't like politics, you will 
find in the Catholic World a rousing 
summary' of Nazi, Communistic, and 
democratic tenets. One young American 
uses "Good Sam, My Rich Uncle" to de- 
scribe "the world octopus, the modern 
state, squirming alive, and waiting for 
us to cure it or for it to devour us."

President Truman called on the 81st 
Congress for a "fair deal", an exten- 
sion of social and economic legislation. 
In repeal of the Taft-Hartley Act, pre 
paid medical and health insurance, 
extended social security benefits, 1,- 
000,000 new housing units in the next 
seven years, and aid to education. Oth- 
er measures requested were universal 
military training, aid to farmers and 
civil rights laws. 

To help finance the program, Mr. 
Truman urged a $4,000,000,000 in-

By way of an introduction may we say 
that NFCCS activities on Catholic col- 
lege campuses throughout the country 
are reaching a new high. 

Loretto Heights < ollege 

Word comes, via the Heightsonian 
News, that the students of Loretto 
Heights College won the annual Dunklee 
Cup award for contributing the most 
money per capita in the Community 
Chest drive. They were competing for 
the award with other colleges and uni- 
versities in the Denver area.

If someone offered you a job as a clerk or a typist with a good salary attached, 
would you say. "YES" in a hurry and chuck your books on the nearest shelf? Who 
cares who Hobbes and Rosseau were anyway? You can earn just as much repeating 
"Operator . . . Ten cents for three minutes, please," without passing Ethics and 
after all, money is just as important as a B.A. — or is it? 

General Eisenhower doesn't think so. In an "Open Letter to American Students" 
he wrote, "Educated people are free people." In other words, philosophy, and Eng- 
lish, and history and all those other annoying requirements are important because 
they teach us to think clearly about our own problems and the larger affairs of the 
world. Whether that hard-to-get degree raises the monthly check or not it gives 
us the "know how" to help change the world. 

Are You a Blond? Or a Redhead? 

If yon are a blond or a redhead— you are in a minority group. Are you under 

all? You too are in a minority. Are your toes double-jointed? You are 

definitely not one of the mob. Do you wear a navy blue skirt and a white blouse to 

school? Most college girls don't. Do you have naturally curlv hair' The majority 

i envy you. You don't wear lipstick ? It's the custom these days. Do you live 
in Los Angeles? Think how many people don't. Are you a Catholic? You belong 
to a minority group. 

Remember the old saying about the people who live in glass houses? 

Representatives Mundt and Nixon and 
three un-American Activities investiga- 
tors visited Whlttaker Chambers' pump- 
kin patch where the famed microfilms 
were hidden. Chambers filled in some of 
the gaps in his testimony, namely his 
activities in the Communist underground 
from 1932 to 1938. He testified that at 
his direction Alger Hiss took documents 
from the State Department. Chambers 
would pick them up and take them to 
Baltimore where a confederate would 
microfilm them. Then Chambers would 
take them baek to Washington so that 
Miss could replace them in the State De- 
partment files the following morning. In 
its final report to the 80th Congress the 
Tn-Amerlcan Activities committee indi- 
cated that the investigation of past and 
present Communist espionage against 
the United States government had just 
been started. 

Singing commercials advertising the 
United Nations were presented to the 
UN by station WNEW in New York 
as a New Year's gift. The UN has al- 
ready received requests for records 
from 75 small stations who want to 
use them for spot announcements. 
WNEW is convinced that the jingles 
will sell the United Nations to "all 
ages and nationalities." The UN con- 
tends that they are just what is need- 
ed to put world problems before chil- 
dren. — Kay Mackin.

Students Discover Time to Read Worthwhile 
Books, Magazines During Catholic Press Month 

A Catholic Press Month poll on the following three questions brought forward 
some interesting information, with a variety of answers: 

1. What Catholic magazine do you like? Why? 

2. Which Catholic book do you think outstanding ? Why ? 

3. Do you read Catholic books, that is, by Catholic authors ? If not, why not ? 
To the first question Jo Pappas, soph- 

omore, and Florence Tyree, freshman, 
voted into top-ranking circles Extension, 
for its appeal to all ages, and its up-to- 
dateness in all topical matters. They 
would class it as an excellent family 
magazine. America was nominated as 
an informative guide to Catholic thought 
and action by Mary Alice Ott and Jean 
Russell, juniors; while Freshmen Lucy 
Guimoye and Margaret Ann Czuleger 
cast their ballots for Integrity, The 
Catholic World, and Concord (because of 
the straight-forwardness of the articles 
about current events.) 

For the best-book award, aside from 
The Bible, those interviewed chose The 
Life of Christ, The Following of Christ. 
Rebuilding a Lost Faith, Dark 
Symphony, and Gall and Honey. The last 
two books mentioned are current auto- 
biographies, which show the fundamen- 
tals of Christianity put into modern 

The third question provoked the query 
— "How can we read Catholic books 
when we don't have time to do all of our 
outside reading for assignments? Only 
when the reading matter coincides with 
Catholic literature— that is. written by 
Catholic authors — are wc able to read 
them." (Because of Catholic Press 
Month we are taking only Catholic au- 
thors, though we naturally recognize the 
.fact that many books are Catholic in 
content and not necessarily of Catholic 

Despite the lack <<i time the girls have 
for reading, they compiled a list of the 
Catholic books they had read and en- 
joyed. They are the following: Seven 
Storey Mountain, Autobiography ol I In 
Little Flower, The Father Brown Stories, 
Rose ol Guadalupe, Light ol Stars, our

mushed their way through the snow at 
Big Bear Lake. Celine Freitas and Joann

Energetic Adelaide 
Sparks Column, SWES 

Now known on campus as the presi- 
dent of SWES, author of "Crow's Nest," 
and a mighty '49er, likeable Adelaide 
Spuhler was once known, quote The 
View, 1945, as ". . . tall, blond Adelaide 
from St. Mary's Academy. . . ." 

Adelaide progressed from her frosh 
status when her sports abilities were 
proved and her yen for the skis took 
root, to the presidency of the sophomore 
class and a keen interest in the field of 
social welfare. 

Becoming aware of "literary style," 
an awareness that is now part of her, 
Adelaide began what is almost a hobby 
— reading theatrical and literary reviews. 
One of her daily habits is to grip the 
nearest bystander by the arm and ex- 
pound on "the best article." 

Her sights from Crow's Nest have 
been trained on almost every student 
here at the Mount. Engagements, wis- 
dom teeth, vacations — she loves them all 
as gems for her popular three-year old 
column. With some of the spare time 
left from her journalistic interests, Adel- 
aide has taken active parts in class ac- 
tivities, Interracial Week programs. 
Gamma Sigma Phi sorority happenings 
and Red Cross charities. 

Energy is her watchword, friendliness 
her project. Adelaide with her sense of 
humor and her capabilities has spark- 
plugged many a dull job. Rapid conver- 
sation thoroughly sprinkled with phrases 
in German is just another of the unmis- 
takable characteristics of this loyal rider 
on Arnold's bus. 

Three Former Students 
Recite Vows in New Year

first semester to marry Arthur Hadley

2:30 to 5:30 at the home of the bride, 
270 South Citrus. 

Lorraine Murphy, chemistry major, 
class of '47, will become Mrs. William 
Purnell on Sunday, February 20. The 
ceremony will be performed at the Old

Burlington. Vermont, where the groom 
is interning 

Genevieve Weeger, former member of 
the class of '50, and John Smurda, pho-

From a humble beginning of one small 
hut with three religious to teach, St. 
John's was enlarged, and responsible at 
one time for the instruction and care 
of 500 Papago, Pima, and Apache In- 
dians from all over the state. Sister 
Euphrasia described them as simple, 
pious people, adept in sewing and handi- 
crafts; and though reluctant to display 
emotions, showed a deep, sincere grati- 
tude for what was being done for them. 

This background of helping others is 
readily shown in Sister Euphrasia's abil- 
ity to make boarders feel at ease in 
their home away from home.

The HOME EC-ho 

One often forgotten member of the 
family is Dad. He has his day sometime 
in June, and at Christmas he usually 
gets a tie or shirt that has been charged 
to his account. Although we introduce 
him proudly to our friends, how many of 
us ever practice Dad-ology? Do we ever 
do something especially for him just to 
tell him that we love him? For some- 
thing small, try a thank-you note for the 
extra five dollars that he gave us. 

Another secret of Dad-ology is an oc- 
casional compliment. Everyone loves 
them including Pop, and he cherishes 
the ones from his daughter. 

Valentine's day may be over now, but 
why not show Dad who is high man in 
your beau line with this: 

Dad's Delight Fudge Cako 
Sift together in a large bowl: 

2 c. cake flour 

% t. soda 

1 t. salt 

Vi c. shortening 
, c. milk 
Mix until flour is dampened. Then beat 
2 minutes by the clock. If using ami 
set at low speed. 

' , c. milk 

1 t. vanilla 

2 eggs 

3 squares unsweetened chocolate, melt- 
ed and cooled. 

Beat 1 minute. Turn into two ungreased 

9-inch layer cake pans, with bottoms 
lined with thin paper. Bake at 375° F. 
about 25 minutes. Cool on racks 5 min- 
utes; turn out of pans, invert and i 
Use boiled or chocolate icing and deco- 
rate with pecan or walnut halves. 

We warn you if Dad likes chocolate, 
he'll love this. 

P.S. Do you have any special recipes? 
Why not share them with us. Turn them 
in to the home economics department 
any time.

View Points I Editorial View 

Dear Reader, 

Xo one likes criticism better than The 
View staff. Since we spend a lot of time 
working on the paper, we want it to 
improve consistently until it is the best 

The Catholic Press Association has 
i ated our paper All-Catholic. That means 
that editorial content is considered good, 
ana that stories are Written in proper 
journalistic style. It also means that 
not only the editorials, but the whole 
paper reflects good Catholic tone. 

That rating means a lot to us, but 
yours — the readers — mean even more. 
After all, we write and type and rewrite 
for you. Please tell us orally or in letters 
what you like and dislike about The 
\ lew. Give us constructive suggestions 
on making it better. In commenting, be 
fair. Realize that this is a small school 
and that news spreads fast. It is diffi- 
cult to discover and to get in print, 
news that you have not already heard. 
You can help us by asking the club 
or class to which you belong to keep 
plans secret unfil they are printed in 
Tin- View. It you know something about 
a student or a graduate that has not 
yet been published, jot it down and put 
it in the office. That will be a big help! 
By the way, we know that you would 
like to see more pictures. We would too, 
but the price of cuts is high and our 
working fund is low. As soon as we get 
more subscribers and advertisers, we'll 
have more art work. 

Thank you lor your cooperation.

Are You Satisfied? 

You make the Catholic press what it is! 

How ? 

That's easy — by buying it, by reading it, by writing for it. 

Some ways were suggested at the last Sodality meeting, but in case you weren't 
there, here they are again with a few more added. 

First, just walk to the back of the Little Theater. There you'll find an exhibit 
of books of all types. You may want one — a spiritual book for retreat, a biography 
for that book report, or a novel just for fun. Maybe you'll buy one for Dad's birthday 
or that ex-roommate's wedding present, but even if you don't, at least get acquainted. 
Then you'll know the latest works of Catholic writers if someone should ask. 

After that, hop on the three-thirty bus to Westwood, but don't go to Crumplar's. 
For a change, try Vaughan's. Azilda Charbonneau, Mount senior, is responsible for 
the window display. After you've looked it over thoroughly, go in and see the 
collection of children's literature and Catholic magazines. The manager, Mrs. Hall, 
mother of Mount grad Ann, is trying to make it the best in the city. She needs your 
interest and support in this apostolic work. 

By the way, The View and all the other local college papers come under the 
heading of Catholic press. You can help them to fulfill their responsibility by attend- 
ing the intercollegiate press forum to be held here on February 23. But don't just 
attend. Be articulate. The staff will be listening to hear your suggestions so that 
they can make your paper the best.

Martin Boyd's story of a "beautiful,

loved" is" supposed to be in the Gals- 
worthy tradition. I agree — both Gals- 
worthy and Boyd write long novels. 

The narrative is as absorbing as a 
pliofilm raincoat. It is supposed to rep- 
resent "a return to the mature, leisurely 
tradition of English literature." If by 
"mature" is meant that it deals primari- 
ly with adults, it is mature. If by "leis- 
urely" is meant a story which meanders 
nowhere handicapped by lame charac- 
ters, it is leisurely. I have a great re- 
spect for English literature. I should 
hate to think it has set up a "tradition" 
which Lucinda Brayford is following. 

The book is so "wide in scope" that 
most of the characters get lost trying to 
cross the 439-page wasteland. Some take 
pride in falling into the mire along the 
.way. others chant their mixed-up phi- 
losophies in the murky grayness; some 
come into focus only to disappear in the 
encircling darkness. Until I- buy "The

Fontbonm- College 
An instructor from Fontbonne College 
in St. Louis, recently returned from a 
visit to Italy to report that the living 
conditions of the people had improved 
100 per cent. The credit for this and the 
progressive defeat of the Communists in 
Italy has been given to the American 
people and the Marshall Plan. Speaking 
of the students in Italy, the source says, 
"They are hungry for education and 
learning, and their schools are given 
preference to everything else in their 
lives. When you talk to a young man 
or woman from one of the schools 
are impressed by his determination and 
ambition. These youths are aware of the 
fact that they are the future of Italy." 
Take a lesson, the same should hold for 
American students.

Present Tense 

It's a Challenge 

Archibishop J. Francis A. Mclntyre has just officially opened a Youth Education 
Fund Drive. He wants to build fifteen elementary and high schools. 

What does that mean to us college students who have just finished a fund drive 
for students overseas ? 

It means that, in some way, we should help right here at home. 

Why? Because our children will fili those schools. Within five years the ma- 
jority of us will be married and within another five many of us will have a chUd of 
school age. 

Do we want to have him refused at our parish school because it is overcrowded ? 

How can the Mount help ? Should we have a drive for funds ? If so, how ? Should 
our aid be spiritual, too ? What do you think ? Write down your suggestion and put 
it in The View office.

N.S.A. Urges Immediate Relaxation of Regulations 
Affecting Chinese Students in U.S. Colleges 

A special emergency appeal was issued 
by the U. S. National Student Associa- 
tion (NSA) to investigate the critical 
condition of Chinese students in the 
United States. They have found them- 
selves without enough money to live on 
as a result of the inflationary conditions 
in China and the stoppage of monetary 
transfers to this country from China. 

In a letter to the Immigration and 
Naturalization Sen-ice, NSA requested 
that attention be given to the emergency 
character of the Chinese students' prob- 
lem and pointed out that the students 
are suffering as a result of a govern- 
ment regulation which requires that 
holders of student visas can accept em- 
ployment only when it does not inter- 
fere with the carrying of a full course 
of study in day classes. 

Ink tn w aive Rule 

NSA stated that this regulation, un- 
der the present critical conditions, is un- 
realistic and prohibits many students 
from engaging in adequate renumerative 
employment in order to supply their 
needs. It is requested that the regula- 
tion be waived for the duration of the 
emergency period for Chinese students in 
critical need. 

In reply to NSA. Mr. Joseph Savoretti, 
assistant commissioner of the Immigra- 
tion and Naturalization Service, stated, 
"I can appreciate the problems of these 
students and I realize the disappoint- 
ment they will suffer if they are obliged 
to discontinue their studies and to leave 
the United States because of financial 
difficulties. The solution that you pro- 
pose, however, ... is not possible under 
the present conditions." 

"1 am not unsympathetic with the 
problems presented, but any further • 
taxation of the requirements with re- 
gard to the employment of students 

could hardly be considered within the 
Congressional intent expressed in the 
statute governing students." 

summer Jobs Possible 

Mr. Savoretti particularly pointed out, 
however, that summer employment is 
possible on a full-time basis without fear 
of deportation. 

The 281 NSA member colleges are be- 
ing urged to assist the Chinese students, 
who in most cases have been warned by 
families and authorities not to return to 
China, to find employment during the 
coming summer vacation. 

Through the assistance of the CI 
Students Christian Federation, NSA has 
acquired the names of emergency cases 
and is sending them to its member col- 

The member student governments 
have been asked to find part-time em- 
ployment for the Chinese students, seek 
scholarships, acquire loans for emergen- 
cy cases, and solicit community support.

particularly critical are California, Co- 
lumbia, Boston, Stanford, Washington,

Students Announce Success of NFCCS Drive; 
New Mercury Now Owned by Jeanne Kingston 

An informal dance February 14 culminated the NFCCS relief for European 
students conducted by Southern California's college students. At the dance held at 
the Casino Gardens, Ocean Park, the winning tickets on the 1949 Mercuries were 
drawn. Mrs. Helen Rivas, who lives in East Los Angeles, won the first Mercury. 
Jeanne Kingston, Mount junior, was the winner of the student car. 

Highlight of the dance was the draw- 
ing for the Mercuries by Father Ben- U/pfJ,-]™ Dl = ,-,<- Jn\A 
eke, but excitement did not end there. Wedding ridHS I Old 

and Marian 

Emily Doll, Huguette Hery 
Clark had the privilege of first telling 
Jeanne of her prize, but Margie O'Han- 
lon, student body president, by phoning 
from the dance had to convince Jeanne 
of its reality. 

Carrol Wax provided music for danc- 
ing and dedicated songs to the colleges 
and their most successful salesmen. As 
the couples entered the dance they were 
handed complimentary tickets for din- 
ners, corsages, and numerous door 

A Dutch flyer now attending UCLA 
spoke on behalf of the relief drive giving 
first hand information about the needs 
of European students. 

Approximate proceeds of the drive in 
the Southern California region were as 

Loyola $8000 

Mount Saint Marys $2200 

Immaculate Heart $1800 

Marymount $800 

Estelle Zehngebot, chairman of the 
drive at the Mount, stated that as a 
whole, the drive this year at the Mount 
was more successful than last year's 
drive. She added that its success was 
due to the whole-hearted cooperation of 
the students. 

Father Mcintosh Tells of 
CIO Activities to SWES 

Father William J. Mcintosh, S.J., of 
Loyola University, spoke to members of 
SWES last week on his observations at 
the 10th annual convention of the C.I.O. 
in Portland. 

Speaking on the national convention 
Itself, he termed it the "supreme law 
of the land" for the C.I.O., since it con- 
sisted of its legislative bodies. Forty- 
eight resolutions were proposed at the 
convention, with attention focused on 
four major issues: Philip Murray's re- 
port, "organizing the unorganized", po- 
liln :il action, and foreign policy. 

In regard to foreign policy, a majority 

approved of the Marshall plan and of 

not supporting Henry Wallace. Mr. 

Murray, president of the C.I.O. , realizing 

that external forces were at work in the 

organization, employed a clever move 

in calling for an open, standing vote on 

the issue. In this declaration of faith. 

stood up in favor of the plan and 

19 voted against it. This was th< 

■ that such an action was called 

for and resulted so successfully. 

Father Mcintosh had high praise for 
i he men at the convention who could 
speak extemporaneously and with such 
force; mainly, Father said, Mr. Murray, 
Mr. Rcuther and Mr. Reeves. 

Aside from the obvious and nameablo 
dangers that threaten, there is the great- 
est danger of all, the danger of nothing 
in particular, of mere drift, seeing noth- 
.shaping living for nothing

By Former Students 

Ida Guillermine Chapman, daughter of 
Dr. and Mrs. William Chapman, Sinaloa, 
Mexico, and George Prestridge Ellington, 
son of John J. Ellington of Clermont, 
were married recently in the Precious 
Blood Church. Msgr. Michael O'Halloran 
officiated at the nuptials. The bride, who 
was a member of Gamma Sigma Phi, 
attended the Mount. Her husband at- 
tended Stanford University and Colum- 
bia. The couple plan to honeymoon in 

Another former Mount student Nata- 
lie Neff, will be married March 13 to 
Ensign Robert Leroy Reed. The cere- 
mony will take place at St. Charles 
Catholic Church in North Hollywood at 
1:30 p.m. The couple will receive guests 
at the Redwood Room of the Hollywood 
Roosevelt Hotel. 

Regina DeCoursey, student body presi- 
dent in '48, will marry Dr. John Sinske 
on April 20 in St. Boniface Church. Ma- 
rianne DeCoursey, student body treas- 
urer, will be a bridesmaid. Regi, an Eng- 
lish major, first met John at graduation. 

Are we worthy that our Church should 
flourish when our love wilts ? Unless the 
Catholic faith kindles the spirit of love 
at least in our families, unless our sodali- 
ties and parishes are real centers of love 
. . . unless our public life is touched by 
the warm breath of our charity, unless 
every errand boy and every cleaning 
woman is for us, our brother and sister, 
there can be no hope of a renewal, of a 
deepening and expansion of Catholic life 
in the world.

Awaken to Life in Christ with Active 
Catholic Thought, Demands Tidings Editor 


Speaking in the vernacular, it's old 
news by now. The Press Forum was held 
a week ago Wednesday evening. 

But speaking as a Catholic college 
woman, that forum can never be old 
news. Social responsibility is never old 
news, and that was the subject of the 

Acting as chairman was Fr. Thomas 
J. McCarthy, managing editor of The 
Tidings. Speakers from each of the Cath- 
olic colleges were present: Valerie Price, 
Marymount; Kay Letts, Immaculate 
Heart; John Hopkins, Loyola, and Betsy 
Knieriem, Mount St. Mary's. Cathy Ed- 
wards, press club president at the Mount, 
welcomed the group. 

In his opening speech, Father McCar- 
thy stressed that our age is not in a 
crisis of decadence as so many sources 
would lead us to believe. We are in a 
crisis of growth, one of the most alive 
periods in history. 


Breaking down these statements to 
national bounds, Father destribed the 
"Priest-workman" idea now being In- 
stilled into French clergy. French priests 
are leaving their rectories and are tak- 
ing Jobs in the mines and factories, 
where the minds of the laity can be 
molded and convinced of Christian prin- 

The situation is universal. But what 
are we doing about it here In America? 
Most of us are inclined to throw In the 
sponge, to bury our heads In the sand 
and to let the world go its merry way to 

Citing examples of the lack of evident 
Catholic action on the part of Catholic 
college graduates, Father noted that not 
one reply, as far as he was able to dls- 
was made to the recent plea for 
legalization of euthanasia, "mercy kill- 
ing " 

I k|,(1 ( ollrpr ( « 

"Where are the Catholic men and 
women who were the students In Cath- 
olic colleges ten years ago?" That's 
easy. They've faded into the dull grey 
. trround of their age and have ceased 
he hope of the Church for a 
changer! world, Father explained. 

The Church has new hope. She has the 
college men and women of today, the 

undergraduates of all the Loyolas, Im- 
maculate Hearts, Marymounts and 
Mount St. Marys in the nation. She has 
the future members of the self-sacrific- 
ing lay-apostolate of tomorrow. She has 
the future religious and» priests. 

Two Student Problems 

But in turn, these young people who 
are to be the doers for Christ and the 
bearer of Christ have two main prob- 
lems, according to Father McCarthy: 

1. Individual formation (You can't 
can't change the world until you've 
formed Christ within your own heart!) 

2. World re-formation (You must 
change the secularistic mileu into a 
Christian one! 

Individual formation — what does it 
call for? Hard work. Deliberate self- 
sacrifice and study. Reading on the 
college level of authors like Belloc, 
Chesterton, Dawson, and Leon Bloy is 
what we need to make the meaning of 
our faith a reality for us. Every time an 
issue rises against the faith we must 
rise to meet it. 

In our world, we need every ounce of 
Ingenuity we possess to build a bridge to 
bring Christ into the world. And unless 
we have love, for each other, that bridge 
will never be built. 

Looh tor Ijuwera 

As for college papers, they are miss- 
ing the boat by miles. They are out lo 
ing for the problems, while they should 
be looking for the answers. Problems are 
staring them In the face. 

True, student thought must be aron 
by collegiate papers. But how about the 
thought of the staff ? I thinking 

so that their articles will be filled with 
fascination for the can 
answer is obvioim. Tin i,.,,iody— to 
change ourselves "Immediately

Snatch the umbrellas, grab the bath- 
ing suits, wax the skis, we're in the 
midst of that delightful, unpredictable, 
exciting March weather. It's getting so 
that you have to carry along a satchel 
to be prepared for all these meteorolog- 
ical changes. George Washington's birth- 
day found thoughtful Mount scholars 
spread about the town. Kathy Ashe and 
Rosemary Schuler gained freckles and 
a pinkish glow from the beach. Nancy 
Parnin finally had a legitimate use for 
the ever-present ski hat, skiing natur- 
ally! Other sorry ones spent a frustrated 
day at home doing assignments and 
consumed with spring fever. 

Days of '49 

To the Sophs, golden cheers and rough 
hurrahs. There's nothing like a costume 
dance to melt hostility and promote 
friendship. Mary Alice Ott and Ray 
made a charming couple as, of all things, 
barber poles. Marian Clark and sister 
Anne, had the distinction of having their 
dates come all the way from Arizona for 
the dance. Rosie Bachand and Kenny 
added to the atmosphere as a can-can 
girl and a cowboy respectively. Joyce 
Pinnock, valiant frontier hausfrau, and 
Tommy Ragan, tough bartender, sup- 
ported Sutter's mill. Mary Connolly, a 
very becoming gold nugget, and her 
grinning date did several neat "aleman 
left's" about the floor. Rosemarie Torres 
and Johnny carried on the theme, she 
as flashing senorita and he as ? Witty 
Cathy Edwards, belle from below ze 
border, blinked lashes at sinister Robin 
Grode, a dice jugglin' gambler. And a 
special nugget is cast at Shirley Zerkie 
for spending long hours promoting this 
most successful of dancing lessons. 

Miss Sally Parker 
Offers P.E. Courses 

Miss Sally Parker, regularly seen on 
the basketball court below St. Joseph's 
Hall is the newest member of the 
Mount's P.E. department. Besides di- 
recting archery and gym classes. :> 
Parker also teaches Principles of Physi- 
cal Education and The Program of Or- 
ganizing Sports, which have been added 
for a P.E. minor. Members of the classes 
Include Huguette Hery, Helene Knapp, 
Eleanor Kellehcr. Mary Ellen Likins, 
June McLaren, Yvonne Mazy, Barbara 
O'Callaghan and Maureen Trounce. 

Originally from Brawlcy. California, 
Parker graduated from Our Lady 
of Peace Academy, San Diego, where 
she knew Sister Alice Marie. She has 
Uught at Brawl, v High School and Jun- 
ior College and at Laguna Beach High 
School She is now working for her mas- 
ters degree in P.E. at UCLA. For pastime 
Parker plays in the Women's In- 
dustrial League for Lockheed as left 
center guard, with games at Chapman 
College every Thursday night. 

The now gym teacher enjoys teaching 
at the Mount for two reasons: she feels 
at home with the f Saint Jos- 

eph of Carondelet, and her small cla> 
are very cooperative. When basketball 
Is organized, she will coach the van 
for intercollegiate competition. 

II' T..I--- .in. I Hero-Worship 
Heroes of the dance were the hand- 
some sheriffs and their dates: Dan and 
Elaine Moore, Marian Clark and her 
Bob, and Gen de Grood and ever present 
George. Teresa McGuire and date gave 
charm, she in her Grandmother's wed- 
ding dress. Mary Lou Hart, a demure 
be-pantalooned miss, and Pat Lyons, 
were a gracious old fashioned couple. 
Mono Carmony, a slinky slave girl, (I 
guess they brought them in to count 
the gold) was seen flitting sylph-like 
about the hall. Jeanne Fry, Jim Davy, 
Rosemary Mikulich, John Hopkins, Doris 
Haulman, Nat Rohe, John Malone, Kay 
Williams and Chuck Taylor, Ellen Mur- 
phy, Mary Jensch and Oscar, Marilyn 
Yee and Bob Toy, Rita Custado and 
Philip Cubilla . . . were seen gaily leap- 
ing up and down to the sprightly music 
and adding their own imaginative cos- 
tumes to the joy of the evening. 


More rings and more starry eyes. Mar- 
ny Connolly and Matt Brady join the 
ranks. The maneuvering of this solemn 
feat goes to Matt's ecstatic cousin Phyl- 
lis Kirby. Got any more cousins hanging 
around? Gerry Cassutt, the most avid 
of all Notre Dame admirers, is now 
attached permanently to that noble in- 
stitution by her engagement to Harry 
Monahan of the SCHOLASTIC. Good!

Holidays Seen as Chaotic 
Deadlines for View Staff 

At least once last Tuesday every 
Mount student was silently happy that 
George Washington had been born. Their 
joy, however, stemmed not so much 
from patriotic reasons as from the reali- 
zation of a holiday, those rare twenty- 
four hour periods which occur not fre- 
quently enough for any pursuer of the 

The View staff, being normal as re- 
gards all forms of study, also rejoiced 
at the thought of a justifiable period of 
scholastic inertia. Their joy soon turned 
to remorse. Why, you ask? Suddenly 
they realized that the inevitable had 
happened. That Tuesday was deadline 

Slight indignation, directed at Mr. 
Washington himself, arose But realizing 
that the man in question was several 
years their elder, all indignants suc- 
cumbed. The problems still existed Wed- 
nesday became deadline day. What hap- 
•I on Thursday? Chaos, friends, 
r chaos, as news stories sailed and 
features flew and "heads" roamed around 
looking for their ownei 

Holidays, we love them! But please, 
no more on alternate Tuesdays. 

Reasons for Study 
Of Languages Given 

Dr. Margaret Schemel, head of the 
Foreign Language Department, Lincoln 
Memorial University, answers the ques- 
tion, "Why study foreign languages" in 
a feature in the "Blue and Gray:" 
"1. They provide an almost unequalled 
means of approach to the attainment of 
the much-to-be-desired spirit of toler- 
ance and of world-citizenry in our pres- 
ent-day state of world-wide confusion. 
As a nation we have long erred in not 
preparing enough men and women to 
understand the major languages that are 
different from our own. 
"2. They provide, through the study of 
foreign literatures, a better comprehen- 
sion of the development of our own cul- 
ture and history. 

"3. The practical uses to which a knowl- 
edge of foreign languages may be put 
are no longer visionary in a world where 
time and space have almost been elimin- 
ated. Some of the areas in which pre- 
vious study of the foceign languages is 
requisite are: 

I a ) . Business — Many representatives 
of American industries and business 
firms are needed for positions in Europe 
and Latin America. 

(bl. Travel in foreign countries (Cuba 
is, for example, only 90 minutes from 
the U. S.l ) 

(c). Social Sen-ice (Among the for- 
eign-born in many American cities or in 
regions where there are minority 

(d). Scientific studies on the graduate 

( e ) . Study abroad. 

(fl. Diplomatic or other government 
services abroad and in our immigration 
offices at ports of entry. 

(g). Secretarial work (in U. S. import 
firms or those having offices in foreign 

(h). Teaching of foreign languages in 
high schools and colleges. 

(i). Air-service (Commercial trans- 
portation companies require some kni 
edge of foreign languages of stewards 
and stewardesses if they fly to foreign 
ports i 

( j i . Translation service. 

( k ) . Librarian's work. 

ill. Military services abroad ( in occu- 
pied countries). 

'I They provide an enjoyable and profit- 
able use of leisure time for those whose 
reading of literature in a foreign lan- 
guage or whose contacts with foreign- 
speaking people will not end with lan- 
guage study in the classroom."

Bus Drivers Add Fun, 
Spirit to Mounters 

From the radio's most versatile 
comedian to the sedate businessman, the 
words "bus driver" usually brings to 
mind the same image. He is a man at 
odds with the world, who spends lus 
leisure time thinking up sarcastic re- 
marks to throw at innocent supporters 
of the local transit line. 

Mount students have discovered, how- 
ever, that there still exists three noble' 
souls whose seats behind the steering 
wheel have not rendered them scornful 
to all who enter their domain. Walter 
and Howard Sibell and Arnold Bullinger 
have managed to retain their good na- 
tures in spite of the demands placed 
upon them by day student and boarder 

The Sibell brothers constantly confuse 
the majority of the students who cannot 
tell them apart. Hence, Howard is fre- 
quently approached with, "Will you wait 
a minute more, Walter?" Walter on the 
other hand, is apt to hear, "Howard, may 
I have a twenty-ride ticket?" Yet they 
seem to take it all as part of the fun of 
such family resemblance. 

Arnold has the distinction of wielding 
the Mount's biggest and best bus (just 
ask him!). He takes great pride in his 
five - year, especially-designed-for-moun- 
tain-climbing charge. Arnold has been 
seen giving it a periodical bath. In addi- 
tion, several edicts have been issued re- 
garding the manner in which its riders 
treat this blue master of the highway. 

All three of our campus personalities 
arc boarders. Walter and Howard live in 
the house behind the Faculty Hall 
Whereas Arnold and Mrs. Bullinger con- 
duct quarters in St. Joseph's Hall. 

Riders on Walter's regular route have 
missed him, since he recently suffered a 
back injury. All students, however, join 
in wishing him a speedy recovery. 

You have no right to await events, as 
do those who have no faith. Events await

View Points Wanted: Apostles to Relieve Cardinal Mindszenty Present Tense 

Dear Editor, 

Why must The View be content to set- 
tle on its laurels of being judged All- 
Catholic in the collegiate journalistic 
field, which can't amount to much unless 
View readers read the paper, like it, talk 
about articles in it that provoke their 
thoughts, and then think and draw their 
own conclusions. 

True, The View has many good points, 
and I also know that the staff and con- 
tributors are few, and publication is 
often. I know, too, that the staff and its 
advisors, are unselfish with their time 
and efforts. 

To give one of the good points: I no- 
' ticed that in the last issue of The View 
were several personality sketches which 
I enjoyed very much. I wish there were 
more of them, for they give the paper a 
personal touch. But then, I think that 
"Present Tense" should be omitted. It is 
well-written and digested, but by the 
time the paper is printed, the news is old. 
Opinions on controversial subjects are 
good, such as The Tidings carries. Why 
couldn't world news be covered by dif- 
ferent writers, or even one, who would 
insert the Catholic viewpoint into the 
news. True, a point is — where are we to 
get the writers? I feel that if students 
like to read their paper, some will like 
to write for it. 

What do you think? 

Sincerely yours, 

Frances Formaneck 

Dear Editor, 

In behalf of the NFCCS Relief Commis- 
sion, we'd like to thank the student body 
of Mount Saint Mary's College for its 
splendid co-operation throughout the 
Student Relief Drive. It will be gratify- 
ing to note that Mount Saint Mary's to- 
tal was $2200, giving an average of $6 
per student. The Mount was second to 
Marymount — who obtained $9 per stu- 
dent. The drive would not and could not 
have been a success without the help of 
each student. As you can see it is always 
the individuals that put a campaign over 
the top. 

To know that their college was back- 
ing them in their work so wholeheartedly 
gave those students on the Relief Drive 
committee both joy and encouragement. 

Thank you again for your hard work 
in "helping to change the world."

As the Communistic sea rose around 
Cardinal Mindszenty, he held and, by 
his example, continues to hold the cross 
of Christ above water. His example of 
courage can not be submerged nor can 
that of the two young attorneys, they 
were 22 and 25 years old, who convicted 
him. • 

Offer your Lenten prayers and acts of 
self-sacrifice in reparation for the suf- 
fering caused by these two men who are 
not much older than we, and for strength

Of Course the Mount Needs a Smoking Room 

It isn't a sin to smoke. Go ahead. It's relaxing if you have already formed the 
habit. Use a cigarette as a social prop, if you want to. You're old enough to make 
your own decisions. All of the other colleges, even most of the Catholic ones, have 
smoking rooms. Why shouldn't we? It isn't a sin to smoke. 

Smoking isn't a sin but it isn't sanctifying. Christ called each of us to be saints, 
to be perfect. Sanctify is impossible without sacrifice. If you feel that you must 
smoke, that it isn't injurious to your health or that of your children in the future; 
wouldn't you be growing in sacrifice and holiness if you gave it up just during the 
hours that you spend at the Mount?

Mary Alice Connors, sophomore. 

"I don't think it makes much difference whether a college is co-educational or 
not, because you can study whether men are around or not." 
"Dee" Yrlgoyen, freshman. 

"I think it's the way to run a school. 
But for studying, it's better to go to a 
girl's school. That's why I'm here." 
Patricia Tyler, junior. 

"I think it works out both ways." 
Lonnie Schell, freshman. 

"It's here to stay. No school should be 
without it." 
Shirley Zerkle, sophomore. 

"I do think it's better because in the 
world women won't deal just with wom- 
en. The reason I am going here is to get 
a Catholic education. But there should 
be a Catholic college which is co-educa- 
tional in the state. Co-education con- 
forms with the old adage, 'Variety is the 
spice of life'." 
Erica Orth, junior. 

"I'm all for it. I came from a co-edu- 
cational high school and liked it." 
Mary Yiirich, senior. 

"I definitely think we should have it.

Emmet Lavery, Playwright and Critic, 
Reviews Merton's "Seven Storey Mountain" 

The all-importance of the first impres- 
sion was brought home to his audience 
by Emmet Lavery, Catholic playwright 
and critic, in his address to the student 
body of Mount St. Mary's College, Tues- 
day, March 8. 

Reviewing Thomas Merton's autobi- 
ography, The Seven Storey Mountain, 
Mr. Lavery said that the over-all im- 
pression he derived from the book was 
that "Here is a great poet." He men- 
tioned strongly that our job is not to 
judge Merton, but to read him and 
listen to him and to try to learn from 
his spiritual trials and findings our own 
way to happiness and salvation. 

In describing Merton's first entry into 
a Catholic church during Mass, Mr. 
Lavery pictured the Corpus Christi 
church by Columbia University in start- 
ling first-hand detail. Mr. Lavery had 
visited the church himself and knew 
from boyhood the Father Moore who 

preached the "right sermon at the right 
time," and started Merton on the path' 
to Gethsemani Abbey. 

Speaking of Merton as a poet and an 
artist from birth. Mr. Lavery stressed 
that he was always looking for the cen- 
ter of things. This center he finally 
found in the mind of God, the only place 
he could find peace and happiness. Draw- 
ing a parallel 'between Merton's search 
and our own. Lavery explained in basic 
Christopher terms, that each of us is 
called to be saints — that we must save 
our souls in some particular vocation. 
There is only one vocation — that to 

Summing up. Mr. Lavery stated that 
all do not believe in Merton, but they 
envy in him his orientation of the man 
according to the Will of God, and every- 
thing else being made to fall into proper 
place in his life. 

Students Teachers Visit 
Catholic High Schools 

Realizing the great need for Catholic 
lay teachers, Mount student teachers 
have arranged to visit high schools of 
the diocese in order to explain the pro- 
fession to prospective candidates. 

Schools already visited are: Sacred 
Heart, Marywood, and Flintridge. Mount 
students participated in a recent panel 
on vocations at Catholic Girls' High 
School. Margie Biggs acted as chair- 
man with Marilyn Wetzel speaking on 
education and home economics and Gen- 
evieve De Grood on science. 

Red Cross Concludes 
Campaign Activities 

Joan Storkan won the Red Cross prize 
for the best Red Cross slogan. It was, 
"Give of your luxuries that others may 
have the necessities." 

Mount St. Mary's Red Cross unit be- 
gan its fund campaign on March 7. Each 
student was notified by post-card which 
day she was to meet her representative 
at the Red Cross booth by the flagpole 
and contribute to this cause. 

Wednesday evening, March 9, the Red 
Cross unit sponsored a card party at 
which boarders played bridge and bingo. 

The campaign drive lasted until 
March 11.

Students Appreciate 
Interracial Week 

The end of Interracial Week rewarded 
students for prize-winning essays and 
poems entered in the Mount contest. 
Mary Joan Pappas. freshman R.N. from 
Phoenix, won first prize for her essay 
and Alice Kraemer, junior, student body 
secretary, took first place with her 
poem. Deenie Ibbetson, Rita McDon- 
ough, Rose Marie Torres, Jo Ann 
O'Brien, Barbara Hartman, and Ruby 
Mae Bunyard received honorable men- 
tion for their essays. 

Mary Joan' Pappas says of the week: 
"Interracial Week provoked many new 
thoughts for most of us and helped us 
revamp our old ideas. We all should 
realize now how much there is to be 
done to promote greater racial justice 
and try to live the program three hun- 
dred and sixty-five days each year, in- 
stead of seven." 

Alice Kraemer expressed thanks to 
everyone, especially Marianne De Cour- 
sey, chairman, for making Interracial 
Week the success it was. A vote of 
appreciation should be given to all those 
students who worked to promote Inter- 
racial Week. 

As a result of a raffle held during 
Interracial Week, the committee raised 
$60 which will be added to the Inter- 
racial scholarship fund.

Blind Spots, Images Stir 
Interest in Experiments 

What would your reaction be if your 
instructors suddenly passed out multi- 
colored strips of crepe paper? 

This very thing happened on a recent 
Monday afternoon as Father Hanlon de- 
cided to test the Experimental Psychol- 
ogy students for color blindness. Father 
expressed considerable surprise when all 
his students were able to distinguish the 
reds from the blues from the greens. 
Several members of the class even re- 
ported a look of disappointment on the 
instructor's face. No abnormalities in 
such a large class? 

Should anyone happen to wander into 
room 106 at the right moment, she 
might see 20-odd students staring blank- 
faced at two blots on white paper. Ac- 
cording to the textbook, if one blot be- 
comes invisible, the subject has "blind 
spots." Connie Rodee, the rebel of the 
class, immediately revealed that she saw 
four marks! Imagine, going through life 
without blind spots! 

Trying to picture a blue dog with six 
feet, members of the class were sore 
distressed recently. The present experi- 
ment, however, is a little more tangible. 
Two water tumblers are used, and over 
these a small object is suspended. The 
purpose is to get the tones, real and 
imaginary, which are produced. 

No doubt there will be one conscien- 
tious student who will bring to class her 
results: two broken water tumblers ac- 
companied by clashing tones! 

Irish or Not . . . 

St. Patrick Comes Alive 
In Newest Biography 

A vital story that takes St. Patrick 
out of the dim world of legend and 
makes him a breathing, praying, fight- 
ing "Irish" man is The Deer Cry by Wil- 
liam Schofield. 

Patrick's capture by invaders, his 
quiet years in Eirinn spent in tending 
sheep, praying, and learning to love the 
people of Eirinn. his escape to Gaul and 
his ordination, his return to the green 
island with six zealous companions and 
their dramatic victory over the Druid 
priests to win the Irish for Christ, high- 
light this believable portrait of "the 
man who was Ireland." 

You'll like the romance between Pat- 
rick's friend and the slave girl who was 
captured when he was; you'll like the 
sturdy men and the womanly women of 
Eirinn; you'll like The Deer Cry whether 
you're Irish and born on St. Patrick's 
day or whether your last name ends in 
"o," "i." or "ich." 

Irish Eyes Smile 
On Mount Colleens 

The lassies are having a day for them- 
selves! St. Patrick's day at the Mount 
sends everyone into day-dreams of the 
Emerald Isle, but there are still a few 
(hmmm!) who have a special right to 
the wearin' of the green. 

For those inquisitive about the merits 
of "Galway Bay," the O'Connor sisters 
Marylou and Katie are the ones to see. 
They have both been to Ireland and re- 
quire only a little encouragement to get 
that dreamy look in their eyes. 

Senior Katie Regan may not be quite 
so loquacious about her heritage, but 
need she be? With those Irish eyes e'er 
smiling and her green suit, she's always 
prepared for March 17. Student Body 
President Margie O'Hanlon, on the other 
hand, is always ready with a tale 
straight from the Blarney Stone. 

Colleen (is there a name more fit- 
ting?) Conlan clearly indicates the Hi- 
bernian element in the class of "52. 
Should Colleen ever need moral support 
in her love for the Irish, she can always 
rely on classmates Maureen Boylan, 
Sheila Lanigan and Monica Kilkelly. 

Junior Mary Lou Cassidy displays her 
fondness for all things green in her 
musical tastes. She is an avid Dennis 
Day fan and has a special weakness for 
his Irish renditions. It's rumored that 
his recording of "Clancy Lowered the 
Boom" occupies first place in the Cas- 
sidy Hit Parade. 

Miss Helen Bryan, instructor in Eng- 
lish at the Mount, has earned her nom- 
ination as the faculty's representative 
among the Mount's Hibernians. English 
majors have noted for some time her 
eagerness for this day to arrive, BE 

But just how far can the leprechauns 
go? Just one week ago trigonometry 
students met with saddened hearts for 
their scheduled examination. When they 
received copies of the examination, how- 
ever, their hearts lightened. They found 
twelve of the hardest problems they had 
ever encountered, but they were typed 
in green! 

We spring from no race; we spring at 
them— so said a pugnacious Irishman. 

Daily Commuters . . . 

Cars and Busses Transport Day Students 
From Home Life to Mount Activities 

"Has anyone a car? I'm finished for the day, but there's no bus right now." 
This statement and its variations can be heard almost any time during class 
hours at the Mount. At tunes the plea of the day student Is answered, but frequently 
two or three dejected figures are seen "running" down Chalon Road. The other 
extreme is. of course, the heavy sleeper who completly ignores Big Ben and then 
arrives at her corner in time to see ! 

Howard putting the bus in high gear. 
These totally normal individuals (what's 
abnormal about oversleeping?) usually 
reach the campus in time for lunch. 

Breathes there a day student who 
has no comment on lunch! The cafeteria 
(pronounced "caf'i is the strangest 
phenomenon at Mount St. Mary's. Daily, 
crowds descend upon the small room 
and, in less than an hour, are fed and 
satisfied until Mom's refrigerator can 
be reached several hours later 

Nature lovers forsake the intimacy 
of Ihe caf and wander out to the patio 
for luncheon under the trees. Physical 
education minors can usually be found 
munching sandwiches between tennis 
serves, basketball scores and sprained 

Evening presents the day student's 
most difficult problem. Dinner is over, 
the dishes are away and the family has 

gathered in the living room. Maybe 
there's a good radio program, or some- 
one suggests a rubber of bridge. But 
how about that term paper or a Spanish 
translation? There's the struggle! Edu- 
cation usually wins, but occasionally we 
are weakened After all. one must spend 
some time with the family! 

Such is the plight of the day student, 
but mingled with it are many, many 
laughs that will someday be an impor- 
tant part of college memories. We love 
it and would have it no other way!

From the Valley Echo comes news of 
the visit of Cardinal Micara, Prefect of 
the Sacred Congregation of Rites in 
Rome, Dean of the Papal Nuncios and 
Papal Legate to the Eucharistic Con- 
gress in Cali, Colombia, to Saint Jo- 
seph's College in Maryland. His Em- 
inence wished to see the tomb of Mother 
Seton, situated on the campus. (Mother 
Seton is the foundress of the order of 
the Sisters of Charity of Saint Vincent 
de Paul in America, who make up the 
faculty of the College.) This visit of 
the Cardinal gives the Congregation rea- 
son to hope that the Cause of Mother i 
Seton has passed another milestone to- 
ward canonization. The Cardinal asked 
that the Sisters and students "Pray 
much for me but more especially for 
Our Holy Father the Pope whose suffer- 
ing is very very great."

Santa Clara's bridge team narrowly 
edged out a strong Lone Mountain octet

should it be out bid?) the girls from 
Lone Mountain. The final round and 
playoff was held after a dinner at which 
the bridge team from Santa Clara played 
host to the Lone Mountaineers. Anyone

Do you smoke ? 

You're lucky if you do. Everybody knows that it is hard, really hard, to abstain 
from smoking once you've begun. So, for at least the hours you spend at the Mount 
each day, you have something to bear for Christ. You have something to start you 
on your way to be a saint and you were meant to be a saint.

Faith . . . 

You have the vital, dynamic Catholic 
faith. Others need it and it is up to 
you to share it with them. No one can 
make you do it, but we can make sug- 
gestions how. Here is an idea that needs 
"legs" to carry it through. 

Why not pick someone unknown to 
you and offer a daily prayer and a daily 
act of self-denial ? For that competitive 
spirit pick an ardent Communist and 
match your zeal and self-sacrifice 
against his. 

That's one idea, but there are others. 
Pick up one of those Catholic maga- 
zines in the lounge. Read it. You might 
get a thought! 

It's your world. It will be as good as 
you are — no better. It should be great 
and Catholic. 

An Opportunity . . . 

You know how it is when you have a 
toothache — you feel miserable all over. 
But soon the rest of you comes to the 
rescue of the suffering part. 

That's what is happening in the Mys- 
tical Body today. The people in Hun- 
gary, Bulgaria, Russia — are suffering 
horribly — that makes all of us suffer. 

And their suffering is our big oppor- 
tunity. They have nothing but the cold- 
ness, the gloom, and the loneliness of 
Good Friday all day every day. We have 
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ a few 
steps away. He is ours to receive every 
morning in Holy Communion. He is 
ours to visit as often as possible, not 
just when it's convenient. 

Offer your visits for the Catholics who 
can't make theirs, and pray that the 
Universal Church will be freed from 

Interracial Week's Observance Promotes 
Understanding; Banishes Student Prejudices 

The following questionnaire is part of one filled out by freshmen before Inter- 
racial Week of this year. Figures taken from the same poll of last year during Inter-

taken from prevailing opinions in the South and are worded according to a noil 
given there. The VIEW staff realizes the false reasoning Involved in tne wordlne 
and prints the results only for the figures Involved.

"My views remained the same and 
were not changed, because I hold no

"During Interracial Week my views 
on the Negro problem were changed 
considerably. I used to think that the 
colored people were below me, not really

now since we have discussed it and

"My views on racial equality were 
strengthened by Mr. Covington's speech. 
I have seen an outstanding example of

"Before Interracial Week I had never

Negro population is very small; I never 
came in contact with them. It had

me. During the last week, by the read-

speakers, I fully realize the problem and 
feel that it is my duty to do something 
about it."

Present Tense 

The tables have turned, to coin a 
phrase. The discriminated have be- 
come discriminators. Jews in Berlin 
violently protested the showing of the 
J. Arthur Rank movie production of 
Oliver Twist, by Dickens. It seems 
that if the picture were shown, even 
the illiterate would know what a 
scoundrel Fagin, the Jew, was. There 
should be no worrying about general 
anti-semitic feeling. Logicians know 
that is not correct to argue from par- 
ticular to universal. 

* * * 

Some strikes are justified; some are 
not. If a strike involves leaving around 
dead people. Cardinal Spellman decided 

that it was not .justified. Ho directed a 
group of Kid seminarians in digging 
graves in New York City's Queens. It 
reminds one of the time of the great 
plague when only St. C'amilliis de Lellls 
and his followers would dare bury the 
contaminated bodies.

The attempts in the Senate to fili- 
buster the proposed amendment of 
cloture rule are obvious in reading the 
Congressional Record. Discussions on 
projects such as the Taft-Hartley La- 
bor Bill, the North Atlantic Alliance, 
and American foreign policy cover 
about nine columns of print at most, 
while discussions on the cloture occupy 
from seven to fifteen pages each day. 

* * • 

Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt announced 
that we are winning the "cold war." 
Does this mean that we will have a 
national holiday when the armistice is 

signed '.'

The successful Catholic Youth Edu- 
cation Fund drive will finance 15 new 
grammar and high schools throughout 
the Los Angeles diocese. With so 
many more children attending insti- 
tutes of lower education now, perhaps 
a few new Catholic colleges will have 
to be projected within the next ten 
years. Perhaps, too, we should pray, 
like the parishioners at Transfigura- 
tion, for many generous girls to help 
staff those new schools.

Fr. Thomas McGlynn, Noted Sculptor and Author, ' 
To Speak at Mount on Tatima and Our World' 

Monday, April 11 at 12:45 Father Thomas McGlynn, OP., will address the 
student body. He will speak on "Fatima and Our World," telling of his interviews 
with Lucy dos Santos, who is now Sister Mary of the Immaculate Heart in the 
Carmelite Order. He will give the historical data of Fatima, and the Church's recog- 
nition and proof of Our Lady's messages. 

Illustrating the lecture will be slides 
of pictures that Father McGlynn himself 
took in Portugal of the countryside and 
of Lucy dos Santos and her relatives. 

Father McGlynn, a native son of Cali- 
fornia and an internationally known 
sculptor, was commissioned by Pope 
Pius XII to make a statue of The Imma- 
culate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima. 

The statue has been completed under 
the direction of Lucy dos Santos. Some 
of his other famous works include a 
statue of Blessed Martin de Porres and 
a bronze bust of His Holiness. Both 
works are in Washington, D. C. 

Father McGlynn is also a playwright. 
His play "Caulky", on racial prejudice, 
was reported a success on the New York 
stage in 1944. He has also just written 
a- book entitle! Vision of Fatima which 
has been acclaimed by authorities as 
the best account of the apparition yet

Catholic Honorary Society 
Presents Corcoran Medal 
To Outstanding Sophomore 

The Corcoran Memorial Award has 
been extended to Mount St. Mary's for 
presentation to an outstanding member 
of its sophomore class. A project of the 
California chapter of Kappa Gamma Pi, 
national Catholic honorary society, it 
has a triple purpose: first, to promote 
Kappa ideals among undergraduates; 
secondly, to acquaint undergraduates 
with the honor society; and thirdly, to 
honor the late Reverend Father Francis 
V. Corcoran, the first National Mod- 
erator of Kappa Gamma Pi. 

The award itself, a sterling silver pin, 
will be presented to the sophomore who 
best fulfills the Kappa ideals of charac- 
ter, scholarship and leadership. 

At Mount St. Mary's, the faculty will 
select the sophomore who best fulfills 
these ideals, as evidenced by her pai I 
pation in all phases of campus activity. 
The name of the recipient will not be 
revealed until the actual day of presenta- 
tion on Mary's Day in May. 

Although she receives the award, the 
recipient will not necessarily be elected 
to Kappa Gamma Pi upon her gradu- 
ation. However, she does merit the op- 
portunity to strive for the gold key of

Mary's Hour to be Celebrated on May 1 ; 
105,000 Expected to Fill Los Angeles Coliseum 

An overflow crowd of 105,000 people is expected to fill the Los Angeles Coli- 
seum on Sunday, May 1, 1949 when Archbishop Mclntyre will preside over Mary's 

The program will begin at 2 o'clock with the singing of hymns by Catholic 
choirs followed by the Archbishop's procession. Two student speakers on the pro- 
gram will be Gene Tighe of Loyola and 
Jean Pew. student body president of 
Immaculate Heart College. There will 
be an opening prayer and recitation of 
the sorrowful mysteries of the rosary. 
For each of the mysteries there will be 
a tableau prepared by the Catholic Col- 
lege students. Bishop Manning's address 
will conclude the program. 

Publicity for Mary's Hour is being 
handled by the Catholic colleges through 
a speaker's bureau. Marlllyn Wetzel is 
in eharge of the Mount bureau and has 
already instructed students who are to 
speak. The plan is to send one man and 
one woman to tell the many parish or- 
ganizations and Catholic groups through- 
out Los Angeles about Mary's Hour, and 

\ plain the need for support and the 
benefits of attendance 

Protestants. Catholics, and Jews are 
being invited to participate in this dem- 
onstration of our desire for peace. The 
Mary's Hour Committee feels that since 
May 1 is a day of celebration for those 
who hold a conflicting ideology, it is an 
appropriate day for those who hope for 
world peace to pray for the Russian 
people in particular.

Local Catholic College Students Participate 
In JCSA Mass and Communion Breakfast 

The Most Reverend Timothy Manning, D.D., last week celebrated Mass and 
presided over the first annual JCSA Communion breakfast. The numerous Southern 
California campuses were well represented at both the Mass at the Cathedral and 
the breakfast at the Rodger Young Auditorium. 

Eugene Felton, from USC Newman Club acted as chairman. The first speaker, 
Rev. Joseph Flynn, C.S.P., warned the 

students to guard against indifference 
and told them they must share truth, 
love, and life with their countrymen. To 
do this they must first be strong in their 
own personal strength and sanctity. 

Bill O'Donnell, U.C.L.A. Newman Club 
president, in speaking of the student 
apostolate, said that if the students are 
Christ-bearers, they must take Him 
where He is not on their own campuses. 

Advantages of belonging to JCSA 
were pointed out by Douglas Whitney of 
Glendale City College. Marjorie O'Han- 
lon, Mount St. Mary's student body pres- 
ident, in suggesting contributions the 
student can make to JCSA advised each 
student to find her place now and glorify 
God through it. 

Bishop Manning summed up the ideas 
under five headings. 1. The student's 
vocation is to be loyal to the truths of 
the catechism and the vows of Confir- 
mation. 2. Apostolicity is necessary! Live 
your faith, the Bishop warned. 3. Feed 
the mind so as to have an intelligent 
appreciation of the faith. 4. Be grateful 
— thank God for the faith which you 
have and which so many do not have. 
5. Be holy. Knowledge is not enough — 
even the devil has a great mind. Hu- 
mility and holiness are essential. 

Professor Jean Canu 
Discusses Andre Gide 
At U.C.L.A. Lecture 

Jean Canu of the University of Paris 
and visiting professor at Bryn Mawr 
and Mills College spoke recently at 
U.C.L.A. on Andre Gide and Normandy. 
Attending the lecture from the Mount 
were Mother Marie de Lourdes, Sister 
Eloise Theresc, Mrs. Friedlander, Azilda 
Charboneau, Lois O ' C o n n e 1 1, Mary 
Dolores Buckley, Mary Yurich, and 
Muriel Rheaume. Monsieur Canu, too, is 
a native of Normandy and therefore 
qualified to speak of a fellow country- 
Gide Compared to Goethe 

Monsieur Canu discussed Gide the ob- 
server, the artist, and the man. Because 
of his minute and detailed descriptions 
of the vegetation of the countryside and 
its effect on the people physically and 
morally, Gide is often compared to 
Goethe. Hi Lea Tableaux <le la Geo- 
graphic de I i I ranee on the subject has 
influenced other French writers. 
Nuraians Proud of Rain 

Ide is equally exact in depicting the 
Cta of climate on the Normans, ac- 
cording to Monsieur Canu. As Califor- 
nians are proud of their sunshine, so 
Normans are proud of their rain. The 
rtainty of the weather tends to 
develop an Ingenuity and pessimism 
characteristic of Normans. There is a 
veritable symphony between the coun- 
tryside and the people as Gide vividly 
portrays them, concluded the lecturer.

Training and Study 
Offered by Graillville 

Summer offers time for travel, time 
for study and time for fun. Many are 
the suggestions for all three, but here 
is one that combines them. 

Grailville, a training school for young 
women interested in the lay apostolate, 
is situated on the outskirts of the village 
of Loveland, about 20 miles northeast of 
Cincinnati, Ohio. Grailville offers a year- 
ly course and of particular interest, sum- 
mer courses. Among them are: 

Foundations of the Lay Apostolate, 
June 28-July 3. 

An introductory course on the lay 
apostolate. Discussion of problems fac- 
ing young women of our time. Practical' 
suggestions for positive apostolic action 
in working and school environments in 
the family and parish. 

Writing-in-the-Christian Spirit July 
12-July 17. 

The source of the Christian spirit in 
relation to writing. Concrete problems 
of the writer. Writing projects and indi- 
vidual criticism. 

The Task of Woman, July 26-July 31. 

The role of woman in our society. A 
positive concept of christian womanhood. 
The psychology of woman in relation to 
her specific contribution toward the 
Christian renewal. 

Marriage in Christ. August 12- August 


The theology of christian marrr 
Growth in holiness in the marrn°-r vo 
tion. Principles of christian family ~nd 
community living. For marrie 1 and en- 
gaged girls especially. 

A small group of American young 
women under the leadership of Dr. Lyd- 
wine van Kersbergen established Grail- 
ville in February, 1944. They understand 
the vocation of every baptized Christian 
—to be saints and apostles. James M 
Shea says of the movement in his 
phlet, "Our Neighbor Grailville": 
"GraUvllle's purpose is to form womanly 
ten and Christian Christians, in the 
1 idlest sense of the terms." 

"Such a crisis as Christianity now 
faces has not been seen since the Church 
was driven underground in the early cen- 
turies of its existence. But the students 
at Grailville have taken up the chal- 
lenge. They will be apostles in the uni- 
versal lay apostolate of the Church. Who 
can afford not to be?"

or other Grailville summer courses

ville, Loveland, Ohio.

Fencing Instructor 
Adds Dash to Course 

The Cercle Royal d'Escrime de Brus- 
selles lost a head coach, but Mount St. 
Mary's gained one when Mr. Jean 
Heremans was invited to teach fencing 
at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. 

Mr. Heremans arrived in the United 
States from Brussells, Belgium, a little 
over two years ago. He had been teach- 
ing fencing there for 12 years, and had 
received his degree of doctor of physical 

At 35 Mr. Heremans was champion of 
Belgium for his class, and has won the 
title of champion of Belgium five times. 
He was eight times international cham- 
pion and was a member of the Olympic 
fencing team. He has coached several 
other Olympic team fencers. 

Besides teaching at the Mount and at 
the L, A. Athletic Club, Mr. Heremans 
also teaches at the University of South- 
ern California. He can boast that his 
fencing team at S. C. has never lost a 

The commands of 'on guard, disen- 
gage, extend the arm, parry, counter 
parry, lunge, gain ground" and similar 
and dissimilar phrases have become 
familiar to his Tuesday and Thursday 
classes, and Mount fencers are becoming 
increasingly proficient. 

Along with 150 students in his regular 
classes Mr. Heremans instructed Gene 
Kelly and other men for their fighting 
scenes In "The Three Musketeers," in 
which he himself also appeared. 

Pattern Swimming Tried 
By Several at Bel-Air Pool 

Monday and Wednesday afternoons 
from 3:30 to 4:45 the Bel-Air Hotel pool 
is open to Mount girls. Since the number 
is limited, it is necessary that anyone 
interested in going contact June McLar- 
en so that she may arrange for a 
definite number. Boarders are taken to 
Westwood and Wilshire in time to meet 
the 5:00 bus. 

Rita Custado, Marilyn Yee, Jean Rus- 
sell, Louise Powers, and June McLaren, 
who went March 28, decided to stress 
synchronized pattern swimming this 
season in place of competitive types. A 
swimming team will be selected from 
the girls who attend, and this group will 
represent the Mount In any intercolle- 
giate swimming activities. 

New Idea Presented 
For Birthday Game 

Traditional at View Birthday Parties 
have been the volleyball games between 
Mount and Loyola teams. However the 
usual procedure will be altered some- 
what this year. Since the Newman Clubs 
are being Invited to the party, they will 
also participate in the games. 

The first game of the afternoon is 
scheduled between Loyola and a team 
composed of members of the Newman 
Clubs, thus giving the men a chance for 
some stiff competition. The girls will 
form the cheering sections for the re- 
spective teams. Following this, the 
Mount team will play the winners. 
Sports editor, Gloria Putman, relates 
that the varsity is being reorganized 
especially in preparation for both I 
game and for the playday on the pre- 
ceding day at Whittier. 

The Mount lost to Loyola for the first 
time last year, but won the two previous 

Tennis Players to Compete 
In Annual Ojai Tourney 

The Mount will participate in the 
annual OJal Valley Tennis Tournament 
on April 28, 29. 30. 

Margaret Ann Czuleger, freshman, 
and Mary Beth Baca, WAA prexy, will 
compete in the singles division. Doubles 
team is still undecided due to Mary Ellen 
Llkln's sprained ankle. If she can play 
by then, either Rita Custado or Barbara 
O'Callaghan will be her partner; if not, 
these two will comprise the team. 

Friday Afternoon Botanists 
Take Local and Desert Trips 

Clouds of pollen dust and trees strip- 
ped of forty-six leaf specimens each 
mark the trail of Sister Gertrude 
Joseph's botany class almost every Fri- 
day afternoon. 

, Ignoring the curious glances of I to 
epistemology class and shaking acacia 
blossoms from their hair, eager botanists 
learn the answers to some of the ques- 
tions future little Jeffreys will probably 
ask in nature study classes ("Teacher, 
how come that pepper tree doesn't have 
peppers?" or "What's this here funny 
looking leaf?" — Horrors! Poison Oak!) 

Fascinating specimen names keep 
English majors distracted. Cham I 
mountain lilacs, and the lemonade sugar 
berry inspire titles for a p«em ("Moun- 
tain Lilacs at Dusk") or perhaps an eru- 
dite essay ("The Economy of the Lemon- 
ade Sugar Berry Bush'i. 

Meanwhile, more practical members of

discuss the exploitation of the Tree 

Field trips to the faraway places also 
add to the glamour of this course. Stu- 
dents not only learn types of plan) 
lecture, but they have an opportunity 
to see them in their natural habitat. An 
overnight excursion to Palm Springs 
will highlight this semester's work.

Education? Fun? We think" so! 


The HOME EC ho 

One of the big problems in attempting 
to select a. major in college is always 
"What am I going to do after I have 
successfully completed it?" The home 
economics field presents a special prob- 
lem. People think only of girls settling 
right down in the proverbial cozy h 
cottage to make the perfect wife and 

Recently the National Home Econo- 
mics Association, listed one hm 
positions which can be filled b 
holding a home economics degree. 
Dietetics, personal shopping, textile de- 
signing, store buying, demonstrai 
teaching and tea room hostessing are 
just a few.

View Points 

Dear Editor, 

The replies to the poll on coeducation 
in the March 3 issue of THE VIEW de- 
serve some comment from the educa- 
tional point of view. As Catholics, when 
speaking of education problems, we 
should be familiar with the Pope's Encyl- 
clical on Christian Education. Pope Pius 
XI states that man and woman were 
created to complement each other, not 
compete with each other. As God 
created man and woman physically dif- 
ferent, so also are their minds and atti- 
tudes different. They can be BEST 
developed only by separate education.

Dear Editor, 

There are about 50 juniors. Next year 

one will be our student body president. 
Is it going to be the girl you know, or 
the girl you know will be a good presi- 
dent? The juniors have been here three 
years — let's get acquainted. 

A Senior 

Dear Editor, 

Vice-Presidents are not second-rate, 
sometimes they even become Presidents. 
Must our student body vice-president be 
the runner-up for president? Why not 
separate nominations? 

A Boarder 

Present Tense 

The North Atlantic Pact, signed by 
the United States on April 4, may be 
paving the way for other pacts — the 
Mi iliterrancan, the South Atlantic, etc. 
But if the present pact lasts through the 
20 years for which It Is chartered, and 
If all the prospective members join, it 
will have to change its name. Italy, 
Turkey, and Greece hardly border on 
tin Atlantic Oct hi 

Soon the United States can also 
boast of a curtain. This one will not 
be of iron, however. It will be a giant 
radar screen which will protect our 
western coast from air attack.

While the cost of food, cars, and 
houses is decreasing in the United 
States, it is increasing on the other 
side of the globe. Strife-worn China 
reports a 460 per cent increase in the 
cost of living during March. Com- 
munism seems to have made only 
military gains in that country

Anoxia and F's 

The following discussion is advanced 
with the express purpose of stimulating 
contsructive thought. Arise! Revolt! 
Down with the decadent grade-system! 

With the advent of science came the 
crystalization of an idea conceived by 
Jules Verne and its manifestation at 
Kitty Hawk — the airplane. As man flew 
higher into the stratosphere, his ascent 
was accompanied by a strange pheno- 
menon which we now know as anoxia. 

Anoxia, for the benefit of the uniniti- 
ated, is weakening of mental processes 
due to the lack of oxygen. Since, by 
authority of the county engineer, the 
Mount is 1,500 feet above sea level, the 
air pressure and supply of oxygen are 
considerably less here than at sea level. 
(Ah, the possibilities — conscience pad- 
ding, explanation of grades to the powers 
that be, etc. ) 

With a wary eye to the finals in June, 
the statistics of the County Engineer, 
and tongue in check, we advance the 
following reforms: 

1. The construction of a pressurized 
classroom for all final examinations. 

2. A mental efficiency curve corrected 
for altitude (1,500 feet) to be applied 


to all final grades. 

3. The installation of toll-free express 
elevators to all 8:30 classes. 

When June and finals roll around let's 
not have to say, "Of all the words of 
tongue or pen, the saddest are these, 
it might have been." 

There's Need at Home, too . . .. 

In the midst of the current NFCCS text book drive for European students, the 
Mount's Interracial Committee has received a plea for good books here at home. A 
letter from Mary Houston of the Catholic Interracial Friendship House in Washing- 
ton, D. C, said in part: 

"People are good about donating books to us here, but not many are suit- 
able for a Catholic lending library — old text books, trashy novels — well, you 
know what I mean. We want books people will read! Here's what we need 
especially: Negroiana — books written about Negroes or on the interracial ques- 
tion. Catholic books *of all sorts— apologetics, philosophy, good sound spiritual 
reading, Maryology, Christology, etc. Good novels are welcome, too." 

Have you realized this before ? Now you know — give it a thought — maybe you'd 
like to share your Catholic knowledge and Catholic books with others who have none. 
It never stops — there's always need, even here at home.

The interview took place in Portugal

Marto said that "Death is the all-import- 
ant fact in the world today, because it 
is too sure .... There is nothing com- 
munism can do for the world that a 
simple realization of death cannot do 
better." This he said with regard to the 
fact that death is the great influence 
for democracy. We must learn to face 
death without fear. The children's 
father maintained that the chief message

lics, and the rest of the world, was the 
message of the Rosary.

Summer Course Open 
At Friendship House 

By Mary Margaret Schaefcr 
The name "Friendship House" is a fa- 
miliar one to social workers whatever 
their faith, but it is of particular interest 
to Catholics. It was begun by Baroness 
Catherine De Hueck to share Christ's 
charity with the underprivileged, espe- 
cially the colored of New York and Chi- 
cago slums. The movement has assumed 
increased importance to Catholic college 
students interested in social work. 

Friendship House will conduct a sum- 
mer school at St. Joseph's Farm, Mara- 
thon City, Wisconsin, with six-weeks' in- 
tensive training for the lay apostolate of 
Catholic Action. 

For anyone who has thought of work 
with Friendship House, the summer 
course will be a good introduction. A 
Friendship House worker has a few 
simple but explicit requirements. She 
must be willing to live in neat but noisy 
tenements in the colored districts; to 
give up all claims to personal posses- 
sions during the time at the centers; to 
wear cast-off clothing when her own 
wears out; to undergo a period of proba- 
tion and training. She must be able to 
adapt herself to unusual conditions and 
to get along well with people. Above all 
she must have strong faith and genuine, 
unselfish love. 

Many make Friendship House their 
life's work; others marry, often one of 
the Friendship House men workers, and 
raise families; others seek careers in 
different fields. Whatever workers ulti- 
mately decide to do, the training at 
Friendship House remains an integral 
shaping force .in their lives.

Tri Rho Club Instructs High Schools on 
Teaching Profession in Lecture Series 

By Mary Jensen 

Mount students Genevieve De Grood, Mary Jensch, Joann Muscmeci, Mary 
O'Brien, Marjorie O'Hanlon, Louise Powers, Nat Rohe, Marillyn Wetzel, and a 
Loyola student, John Riley, recently gave a series of talks to high school students 
totaling over two thousand on aspects of teaching as a profession. 

High schools at which the talks were given are Flintridge Sacred Heart Acad- 
emy, Pasadena; Sacred Heart Academy, Los Angeles; Marywood High School, Ana- 
heim; Bellarmine- Jefferson High School, Burbank; St. Agnes High School, Los 
Angeles; Ramona Convent, Alhambra; Corvallis High School, Studio City; St. Mary's 
Academy, Los Angeles; St. Monica's High School, Santa Monica; and, Catholic 
Girls' High School, Los Angeles. 

Important Points Discussed 

The speakers stressed the following points: 

The need for teachers, religious and secular, in new Catholic public schools. 
The need for Christian trained teachers In public schools. 
The qualifications needed by teachers. 
The kind of education which prepares one for teaching. 
The use of teacher training in life vocations as In marriage. 
The use to which understanding of children's growth, mental, physical, and 
spiritual may be put. 

The reward in eternity, because the mind is the soul — teaching is working 
with the soul or the greatest profession. 

Finally, the temporal advantage of the adequate salary offered teachers in 

Marillyn Wetzel Organizes Plan 
The project organized under Marillyn Wetzel's leadership was sponsored by the 
Tri-Rho Club of the education department. Dr. Lillian O'Connor of Loyola Univer- 
sity Education Department said, "The plan of giving vocational information to the 
pupils on the high school level instituted by Mount St. Mary's College is very valu- 
able. Many pupils enter college without a defined objective due to lack of informa- 
tion on the training and ability necessary for the successful achievement of a specific 
career. This technique of using college students to describe college and college 
curricula to the secondary school pupils is of inestimable value." The Mount plan 
gave impetus to Loyola men who, in turn, have begun to speak to the Catholic boys' 

Letter Brings Enthusiastic Replies 
The following letter initiated the program: 
Dear Principal, 

Realizing the necessity for Catholic lay teachers in both Catholic and public 
schools, Tri-Rho, the Education Club of Mount St. Mary's College is organizing 
a campaign to inform future college women of this great need. 

Seven students who have just finished student teaching are among those 
who are available for these talks. Among the other students we have those who 
are equipped to discuss the McCollum Case and other current topics of impor- 
tance to teachers. 

If you wish to have two members of this group speak to the juniors and 
seniors of your high school, we will be most happy to arrange it. If you are 
interested, please write as soon as possible, including a tentative date and time. 
This way our schedule may be drawn up to suit yours. 

Sincerely yours, 
Marillyn Wetzel 

Chairman, Information Committee 
Enthusiastic replies from schools eager to share in the benefits of the program 
came from Sister Mary Thomas, O.P., Sacred Heart Academy. Sister Margaret 
Celeste, Marywood High School, Sister Mary St. Daniel, B.V.mJ Bellarmine-Jeffer- 
son High School, Sister Pauline Mary. Ramona Convent, Sister Marv Benigna, O. P 
Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, Miss Hope Sheeley, St. Agnes High School. 

Speakers Express Vppreclation 
Tri-Rho members expressed their enjoyment at sharing in the project and 
remarked that the sacrifice it involved was worthwhile. Marillyn Wetzel stated, "It 
is amazing how eager high school students are to know what fields are open to 
women after college graduation. As a result of the talks many high school 
have decided to attend a Catholic college and go into education." 

Mary Clare O'Brien said, "I feel that we acquainted students with the real need 
for teachers in the school system today." 

Nat Rohe commented. 'The eagerness and enthusiasm met assured me that our 
time and effort were well spent. High school students want specific information on 
some profession which they may prepare for. They look to us eollegc students to 
help them decide upon paths which they will enjoy following. T tandards 

ol i he teaching profession challenge them to work for a means of gaining a living 
Which will include the study and training so useful in marriage." 
st. Agnes Boyi Have Questions \n>-u, ,. ,i 
John Riley was amazed at the response he rei rom St. Agnes High School 

boys. They were eager to know so many things abo tnat 

they literally showered him with questions. .Those who have worked on the project 
agree that the personal satisfaction and good resull obtained made the plan one 
of the most important and far-reaching that Tri-Rho has carried on this year.

Happy Birthday 
The- View's celebration was a success, 
judging from the contented faces. The 
entertainment was hilarious. Margie 
Biggs' brother gave a riotous interpre- 
tation of Spike Jones. Murielle and 
Estelle, the celebrated comedy team, 
convulsed the audience with a "cultural" 
rendition of an aria from "Romeo and 
Juliet." Veddy, veddy good. The Ha- 
waiian colony from the Mount and from 
L.A.'s Hawaiian Club added authentic 
island atmosphere with their singing 
and dancing. Betty Jane Flores was a 
superb Hilo Hattie. Sech rhythm and 
grace! And of course, the hula Marilyn 
Yee danced to perfection. The multi- 
lingual Loyolan, Jerry Phelan, proved to 
be a gay and humorous emcee. 

Boxes and Bows 

Box suppers at the party were artistic 
achievements. Beverly Halpin's won 
first prize. And rightly so — it looked 
like a miniature rose parade float. Betty 
Parker's hinted at spring with a beauti- 
ful crepe paper bird surrounded by flow- 
Carol Sebastian's gaily decorated 
red heart drew enthusiastic bidding. Pat 
Catalyne's masterpiece complete with 
miniature lake and arch of flowers drew 
oh's and all's. Dancing afterward was 
yed by hep cats and minuet bugs 
alike. We still marvel at the gyrations 
and gymnastics of Jean Russell and 
Frank Hurlbut. That man must have jet 
engines in his feet! 

This one compliments of Olga Stad- 

Sister to a perpetually tardy scholar: 
"What day were- you born?'' 

Student: "April 2, Sister." 

"For goodness sakes, you were even a

Ah. Spring! The season of balls— golf,

The HOME EC-ho 

This season sees more money spent 
for wedding gifts than any other, and 
often wastefully. 

Any gift with the personal touch is 
always appreciated and worth the ef- 
fort. An old hobby of the last genera- 
tion is coming back in big strides. It is 
the hand painting of china. Even with 
complete lack of artistic ability anyone 
can paint a china candy dish with gold, 
placing her initials on the under-side to 
keep herself remembered. The more ex- 
perienced artist may try banding a dish 
in gold and adding a spray of violets or 
other flowers or even a monogram. 

One thoughtful lady we've heard about 
gives the new couple a check to cover 
their first month's water, light and gas 

A popular custom in this area is the 
registering of the bride's chosen pattern 
of china, crystal and silver at a local 
store carrying the pattern. The bride 
lists what pieces she wants and those 
she has, and then friends can fill in 
with no fear of "Will she like this?" or 
"She may get too many of these." 

Linens are always welcome. Among 
the more expensive are pure Irish linens. 
The new rayon-linen combinations are 
now finely developed and also long 
wearing. Luncheon cloths, breakfast 
cloths, towel sets, sheets and pillow 
cases (without colored embroidery) and 
blankets can never be too plentiful. One 
cannot, however, buy a wedding present 
that is both good and inexpensive. 
Things lovely and long lasting are be- 
yond the average college girl's budget. 
The favorite solution to the problem is 
to go in with one or several others and 
get something really useful and long- 
lasting to carry your wish for true 
happiness to the bride and groom in their 
life together. 

A Busy Queen . . . 

Editor of The Mount 1 
Marked by Varied 
Talents and Charms 

The desk top in room 311 is visible 
again ! 

And with The Mount copy tucked 
away for another year, senior Lois 
O'Connell finishes another project. This 
year Editor O'Connell has devoted her 
spare time — and time not so spare — to 
organizing and supervising the third 
edition of the college annual. With an 
English major, including participation in 
creative writing contests, Lois is well 
qualified for her editorship. 

Crowned Queen at the View birthday 
party last week, Lois accepted the honor 
in her own nonchalant way. The \ i. •» 
must have been proud, though, as ifc 
past editor ruled the celebration. Lois 
directed publication of the paper for. one 
year and has been contributor and page 
editor respectively. 

Because she lives in Phoenix, Lois con- 
fines her homeward treks to long week- 
ends and official vacations. By frequent 
rides to Westwood, however, she keeps 
her green Chevrolet in trim for the long 
drive home. 

The next time Lois heads for the home 
town, she will have finished her years at 
the Mount; faculty and students agree 
that Phoenix could not have sent a bet- 
ter representative.

Loyola-Mount Game 
Highlight of Party 

In the opening volleyball game ol The

feated the Newman Club team by a 
score of 15-9. Loyola then played the 
Hawaiians of the Hawaiian Club of Los 
Angeles. The Hawaiians, displaying 
more skill, overshadowed the Loyola sex- 
tet 11-8. Next, the Mount girls encoun- 
tered the Hawaiians and bettered tl 
by a score of 11-0. 

The traditional Loyola-Mount game 
highlighted the afternoon. Pete Scherr 
and his five colleagues provided 
competition for the Mount team, defeat- 
ing them 15-8. 

Because of renewed interest in volley- 
ball, stimulated by the View birthday 
party, the Whittier playday, and the La

decided to resume the volleyball doubles 
tournament that could not be fim 
before Christmas. The schedule has been

View Points 

Dear Editor, 

I have a new hobby of writing to 
college students in foreign countries. 
Copies of The View have been sent to 
Ireland, England, France, Denmark, Hol- 
land, Germany, Czechoslovakia, Alaska, 
Australia, New Zealand, Trinidad, Paki- 
stan and the Fiji Islands. They all want 
to see more of The View. 

Congratulations !

Dear Editor, 

Our Lady appeared to a sister in the 
Carmelite Monastery, Lipa City, Phil- 
lipines. She made herself known as 
Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace. On her 
last visit, "She looked tenderly but sadly 
on her little one and on the Community 
that had followed. Then she said: 'Peo- 
ple believe not my words. Pray, my 
child, pray much because of persecution. 
Pray for priests. What I ask here is ex- 
actly what I have asked at Fatima. Tell 
this to the people. They don't believe in 
me nor do they give what I ask. Tell 
the Sisters that I ask them to pray and 
help spread my devotion and to do pen- 
ance for those who don't believe. When 
people come to pray and ask for graces, 
let them ask directly of me and not 
through you. . .' " 

I believe that the Central Association 
of the Miraculous Medal is an answer 
to Mary's request. This association has 
three purposes: 

1. To spread devotion to Our Lady. 

2. To aid young men who wish to be- 
come priests but do not have the 

3. To aid missionary work. 

Rev. Joseph A. Skelly, CM., the Di- 
>r, asked me to try to procure new 
members. A thousand Masses are said 
for each member every year besides five 
novenas of Masses this year. Twenty- 
five cents is the yearly membership fee. 
Each member receives a blessed Miracu- 
lous Medal, a membership card, and an 
illustrated membership booklet. 

II any of the students wish to receive 

information of the Association or 
become a member, I will gladly help 
them. Also, if they wish to know of the 
story of the Apparitions at Lipa, I shall 
I"- glad to tell them. 

May Our Lady protect all of us and 
help us in whatever we undertake.

Notre Dame Loves Her — Do We? 

On the campus of the University of Notre Dame there is a shrine, a replica of 
that of Lourdes in France. Recently The Sunday Visitor reprinted a report which 
appeared in the Religious Bulletin of the University of Notre Dame. 

Last Spring a student went to the Grotto and kept count for an hour of the 
number of students who came to make a visit. Many tried to count the tally but 
never came close to the actual count. 

The total was 890 men — and that was in one hour! 

The report then states, "The count was made on an ordinary day. It was not a 
day in Mary's month of May, nor was a novena of any kind going on, or were 
examinations driving one to seek extra help. . . ." 

The Mount is not as large as Notre Dame. It would be impossible for that many 
to visit our shrine to Mary since there are not that many people on the campus. 
However, is there any reason why the entire student body should not be represented 
at the noon rosary during May? If the men can do it, so can we. 

Present Tense 

National Family Week was approved 
by President Truman to be from May 1 
to 8. Of course the Trumans and the 
other families in the country realize that 
a full year of "family weeks" is neces- 
sary to return the nation to an even keel. 





Whether you have faith in pulls or not, you will probably be interested in the 
results of two — one taken at U.S.F. and the other at Eastern Illinois State College — 
on what young college men expect of young college women. 

Gentlemen seem to prefer us in skirt and blouse combinations — that uniform 
isn't a handicap — but if we don't have a two-piecer handy, they will allow us to 
wear the dress which about 17.5 per cent prefer. 

An evening's entertainment will most likely be dancing unless your date is one 
of the 20.5 per cent who like the movies or a walk, or the 14.5 per cent who like 
to ride. 

Another thing, ladies, if you use cosmetics lightly, 59 per cent of the boys will 
favor you; 41 per cent say use the paint and powder to a medium degree, and if you 
use them heavily, "then it's best to just pray." 

Here are some exact quotations. Freshmen — a gentleman of your station wants 
you to "have simplicity and a sense of humor," but "to lack frivolity." 

Sophs — a non-Catholic, male classmate judges his dates by her "character and 
how you can talk to her." 

Juniors — you're lucky. Your fellowman is "not looking for the most beautiful'' 
though he "thought so once." He now seeks a girl with "personality" and who' is 
"a lady in more ways than one." 

Finally, a Catholic senior desires "chasteness and good manners" and rules out 
those who "drink and smoke." 

There they have given us a cue. Now, it's up to us.

Mount St. Mary's Confers Two Honorary Degrees 
On Noted Catholics Irene Dunne and Doctor Pollia 

At its commencement exercises this year, Mount St. Mary's College will ■ 
honorary degrees on two persons whose outstanding qualities and interest in the 
college deserve public recognition. 

Miss Irene Dunne (Mrs. Francis Griffin » pi 
qualities which Mount St. Mary's has always tried to instill in hei The 

college is conferring the degree of Doc- 
tor of Laws, LL.D., on Miss Dunne in 
recognition of her courageous fidelity to 
Catholic principles in public and private 
life, her spirit of Christian charity to- 
wards the poor and the suffering, and 
her exemplification of the ideals of true 
Catholic womanhood in a profession 
which of its nature needs these ideals. 
Also, the college recognizes her interest 
in Mount St Mary's, particularly in its 
newly established department of cancer 
research. Miss Dunne was honored as 
America's outstanding Catholic of 1949 
when she was awarded the annual Notre 
Dame Laetare medal. 

Doctor Joseph A. Pollia, director of 
the Frank Boyer Foundation and chair- 
man of the department of cancer re- 
search at Mount St Mary's, will also 
receive the degree of Doctor of Laws in 
recognition of his scholarly research and 
achievement in the field of science which 
has been directed towards alleviation of 
human suffering. 

The college acknowledges his Interest 
in Catholic education in general and his 
particular interest in Mount St. Mary's 
in establishing the department of cancer 
research. It recognizes his inspiring lead- 
ership which has encouraged numbers 
of students to dedicate themselves to 
the service of the suffering members of 
Christ's Mystical Body.

View Points 

Dear Betsy, 

Do you remember when you were a 
freshman — who was it that took over 
the entire student body to rehearse the 
graduation? And when you were a soph- 
omore — how did you learn the gradua- 
tion songs in so short a time ? Well, here 
you are a junior and soon you'll be learn- 
ing, in one or two sessions, the numbers 
to be sung on June 5. Just who is the 
"Commando" who can train three hun- 
dred girls to sing beautifully and on 
pitch in a couple of rehearsals? 

Will Garroway needs no introduction. 
Anyone who can handle 300 girls— Mount 
girls — need not be introduced. But he 
should be appreciated, and he is. 

I have studied for four years with 
Mr. Garroway. Because of this privilege 
I feel that I'm in a position to express 
for all of us the real admiration we have 
for him. On behalf of the student body, 
may I thank Mr. Garroway for his real 
work at Mount St. Mary's? Thank him, 
too, for courageously confronting us each 
year about this time. 

Marguerite Biggs 

Dear Editor, 

Home economics majors would like to 
thank the student body and friends for 
their support in our recent appeal for 
Betty Crocker coupons. Marillyn Wetzel, 
chairman of the drive, tells us that the 
order for the twelve place settings of 
silver has been mailed. We hope that 
the set will be here in order to display 
it at graduation. 

So many coupons were collected that 
we plan another drive in the fall to ob- 
tain an additional twelve place settings. 

We think that you and the student 
body will be interested in this sidelight. 
Someone, probably a graduate or former 
student, sent us 23 coupons, just enough 
to ■ omplete the needed 186. No name 
nor message accompanied them, but we 
urne that this generous person read 
of our campaign in Tin- View. To her 
and to you we say, "Many thanks."

Life magazine is typical of the secularism rolling from the presses each week, 
shaping the standards of countless Americans. Catholic college students should be 
interested in its two recent articles revealing the serious problem of our materialistic 

They Are Poor Little Sheep . . . 

In the March twenty-eighth issue John McPartland, in a "cross-country bull 
session," reports the average college youth as a "sensible young man with ideas of 
his own." The choice individuals who gave the author their ideas may indicate the 
college trend, but the public may generalize from the article that all young Ameri- 
cans are therefore unfit to be custodians of the future. Thousands of sectarian 
students are omitted from the "survey." 

Instructors report their students as men "with mockery behind their eyes," 
who have "buried Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas," and who think of churches as 
fraternities to give you something besides an animal reason for living in the 
world. Why aren't Life readers also told of sectarian ideologies and the philosophies 
of Aristotle and Aquinas studies in our colleges ? 

Striving for knowledge in "high-powered trade schools," students are described 
as future parts of Almighty Organization, whether on football teams or G.E. and 
G.M. teams. Then they could search as madly for money. Have they ever heard of 
the dignity of the social order and labor ? 

One student, wanting everyone to be psychoanalyed, mentioned the big names 
that would not "get a clean bill." And who could give the psychiatrists and students 
a clean bill ? Catholics do not need Freud ; we have the confessional. 

Another student, typical of those interested in the Soviet, was satisfied with 
increasing socialism in the government. Do they know that "this nation under God 
is of, by, and for the people ? 

To Have or Not to Have . . . 

One generalization of college students was not enough. In the May ninth issue 
is a revealing article, "Coed vs. Girls' Colleges." Both sides of the question, "To 
be or not to be in a school with men," are represented by "typical" students from 
each. The co-educational schools probably object to the presentation as much as 
we do, but Life editors do seem biased. 

The co-ed colleges, described as "date factories," believe that women must be 
in the world of men eventually. Why not now? The Holy Father's encyclicals 
answer that they should prepare separately for that day when both can complement 
each other correctly, instead of hampering each other's growth. 

Women college students, and therefore Catholics, are unjustly represented as 
frustrated, bookwormish young Amazons who consider men as practically nonenti- 
ties. Although arguments for women's colleges are presented attractively, our 
reasons for attending a women's college are omitted. 

And So Ladies . . . 

The two Life articles are not true to life. We are sorry that such conditions are 
presented to the public as an indication of college life, excluding Catholic philosophy. 
We are happy to try to remedy them and to be at a Catholic women's college. 

And we will be more than happy to see you at the Mount next semester.

N.S.A. News 
Recently at the N.S.A. meeting at 
U.C.L.A., representatives from Santa 
Clara obtained a signal victory (with 
the help of representatives from Mount 
Saint Mary's). The representatives pro- 
posed a resolution concerning a recent 
statement of the executive committee of 
N.S.A. on academic freedom. In a joint 
statement the representatives from San- 
ta Clara commented, "The unanimous 
passage of the Santa Clara resolution 
. . . clearly shows that the N.S.A. is 
capable of achieving a high degree 

'•ration between the many different 
schools which comprise its membership."

It is hard to say thank you in writing

insincere. That is why it is hard for 
me to write this. However, after spend- 
ing three years with The View in almost 
every position, I realize that the editor 
is one of the least important members 
of a newspaper staff. True, someone 
must be at the top to give assignments, 
answer questions, and take the credit, 
but the truly important ones are those 
whose names never reach the headlines.

reporters who drove their legs to

the car owners who drove us to Mr! 
Sturdy's, the advertising staff and the 
advertisers who helped pay the bills, 
our guardian angels — the faculty mod-

Betsy Kmeriem, past View editor, was 
eletted Mount student body president 
for 1949-50. 

Student Body Officers Interviewed; All 
Show Experience, Promise and Leadership 

By Gloria Xitrini 

The tension of elections has eased but we'll finish up the election season before 
It's time to worry about finals by telling you about your officers who will go into 
action September, 1949. 

Betsy Knlerlem is a rare combination. She has been both a day hop and a 
boarder. This experience will help her a great deal as the new student body president 

because she will know what's best for 

both groups. This year as editor of 
The View she has shown her leadership 
ability by always getting out the kind 

of paper you want. Betsy began early. 

At St. Mary's Academy she worked on 

close to everything and was Vice-Prefect 

of the Sodality in her senior year. Here 

at the Mount she hasn't let up one min- 
ute, and you can easily believe it — note 

the waist line. Betsy has done every job 

on The View, starting as a cub reporter 

and working up to editor. Last year she 

edited the student handbook. Because 

of all this experience, Betsy has been 

able to get a complete picture of the 

Mount as well as knowledge of inter- 
collegiate activities and ideas. Betsy 


States \ lews 

"Aside from the fact that I wanted 
to be president so that I could give my 
all for the Mount, I wanted to win -to 
show my family that I am attempting 
to do things with the opportunities they 
have given me." 

Our new president fits into the 1950 
term perfectly. That year will mark the 
2Mii anniversary of the school and the 
300th anniversary of the St. Joseph's 
Order. Betsy herself is part of this tra- 
dition as she has been instructed by the 
Sisters of St. Joseph since she was five 
and a half years old. Next year should 
prove to be a year well worthy of i 
bration with Betsy Knieriem as student 
body president.

New Pool Will Open 
Officially on June 2; 
Seniors Get First Dip 

The Mount swimming pool will be 
officially opened on Field Day. A dedi- 
cation ceremony planned by the WAA 
will be a program of exhibition swim- 
ming. June McLaren heads the commit- 
tee of arrangements. 

Seniors only will be allowed in the 
pool first but the student body will be 
allowed in after a few minutes. No regu- 
lation suit has been decided upon, but 
one piece suits must be worn. 

A bronze plaque with the names of 
Hundred Club members inscribed on it 
will be put in place as soon as it arrives. 

All Mount students wishing to use the 
pool must present athletic cards. In 
order that arrangements may be made 
for a life guard to be on hand at all 
times when girls are in swimming, stu- 
dents are requested to call the Mount 
before coming up.

Age of Anthologies 
Characterizes Present 

During the last few years there have 
been various efforts to place the present 
age in a neat and precise category. 
Among these labels one has been pro- 
posed again and again. That is The Age 
Of Anthologies. 

Anthologies are compiled for many 
different reasons. Some publishers like 
to clear their offices of the remains of 
a former client. Also if the 'editor' is in 
very small print some people might mis- 
takenly assume that the name in large 
print is that of the author. 

There are bedside anthologies, and 
travel anthologies, with subdivisions for 
plane, train, ship, and automobile. There 
are anthologies for people who are sick 
and people who are well. There are an- 
thologies for mystery addicts, and for 
philosophers, of short stories, and nov- 
els. It has been reported that there has 
even been an anthology of stories whose 
locale has been laid in Gopher Hot 
Springs, but this has not been proven. 
Presumably the favorite anthology is 
one that is never published except in 
theory. This is an anthology of an indi- 
vidual's favorite works, the ones he 
would prefer to be shipwrecked with. 
The best reason for their lack of publi- 
cation is that they resemble the Har- 
vard Classics more than they do a single 

If it were possible to find a powder 
which would reduce the size of the vol- 
ume to be carried in a pocket or pocket- 
book, and then to expand to reading size 
on need, many more anthologies would 
be on the market.

Dad, Mother, the children, a dog, and 
two canaries race through this hilarious 
story in their temperamental Pierce- 
Arrow nicknamed "Foolish Carriage". 
Dad was a "motion study" expert who 
used his family in experiments to elimi- 
nate wasted motions. 

Beneath frivolous accounts of the 
family council, the master-plan of grade- 
skipping, the visit of the birth control 
woman, and the reception of suitors lies 
the fundamental beauty of the family 
relationship. Dad one time remarked the 
Catholic Church was "the only outfit 
that would give me some special credit 
for having such a large family". Despite 
his lack of orthodox religion Dad, with 
Mother's help, raised his children in the 
fear and love of God and their parents. 
The authors have successfully recap- 
tured the warmth of humor and nostal- 
gia that marked their life. The book 
with its light, easy style will appeal 
to those who can't share the feeling 
of belonging to a large family as much 
as to those who can. Both types will 
sigh -- one for what they remember; 
the other for what they can imagine. 
Dad's whole philosophy is in his answer 
to the question, "What do you want to 
save time for?" "For education, for 
beauty, for art, for pleasure, . . . for 
mumblety-peg, if that's where your heart 

Students Give Opinions on Books Read and 
Name Books Desired for Summer Reading 

Question; What is the best booh von have read this year, and why? What books 
do you plan to read this summer? 

Mary Alice Connors, sophomore: "I read a romantic historical novel this year 
by Frank Spearman about Don Juan of Austria— The Spanish Lover. This summer 
I plan to do some reading in Spanish, but none in English." 

Ellen Garrecht, senior: "I liked Late 
Have I Loved Thee by Mannin because 
it's more than a story and has a lot of 
thought — a wonderful book. I plan to 
read a lot this summer — not medical or 
text books." 

Peggy Bradish, freshman: 
< rv tin Beloved Country because it i 
sents racial prejudice in a simple man- 
ner. It contains none of the bitterne> 
exaggerated characterization of most 
books on this subject. This sunn 
among others, I would like to I

"Every movement and every event of

of liberty and desire." Thus Thomas

Mary Janney, Mount Delegate, Reports on 
NFCCS National Congress in Chicago 

Mary Janney, Mount sophomore, returned last week and reported to the student 
body on the sixth National Congress of the NFCCS held at the Congress Hotel in 
Chicago, 111. Approximately one hundred and sixty-two Catholic colleges and uni- 
versities from the United States were represented. Mr. Bernard de Hoog, general 
secretary of Pax Romana, and Mr. John Puccio of the Italian A.N. S.I. also were 
presented. ■ — 

Project theme for the Congress and 
the school year 1949-50 is "A Call to the 
Lay Apostolate." This idea was the long 
range view which the Congress endeav- 
ored to keep in mind. The initiation of 
awareness will progress further after the 
close of the 1950 school year, but the 
theme of the apostolate will develop into 
more particular projects. 

The National Council met prior to 
Congress Plenary sessions. There was 
discussion of rechartering and evaluating 
regions and national commissions. Re- 
ports were given by national officers 
and commission chiarmen for council 

Federal Aid Discussed 

The most important issues discussed 
were those on federal aid through the 
Thomas Bill or the McMahon-Johnson 
Bill; the legislative stand on civil rights; 
the international program through Pax 
Romana and J.C.S.A.; and the new Na- 
tional Catholic Youth Council, which is 
as yet still a paper organization. 

Charlie Hogan, National President 
1948-49, outlined four phases of the Con- 
gress as follows: 

1. Plenary sessions 

2. Commission panels 

>cial time 
1. Free time 
There were five plenary sessions at 
least three hours in length. 

Annual Budget Planned 

The committee on ways and means 
drew up the annual budget for the new 
fiscal year, April 15 to April 15. As a re- 
ult of (his year's committee meeting, 
the national treasurer is to be a "bonded 
custodian of Federation funds." Prior to 
this time, the Executive Secretary han- 
all receipts and disbursements of 

National officers for 1949-50 are: 
President, Tom Bricklly of Pittsbugh re- 
gion; First Vice-President, Dick Murphy 
of Lake Erie region; Second Vice-Presi- 
dent, Pete Kuntz of Cincinnati region; 
Third Vice-President, Joe Hylard of Chi- 
cago region; Treasurer, Clem Ferris of 
New England region.

Youth Argosy Group Offers 
Globe Circling Flights 

Many students who want to go abroad 
will want to learn of some good news 
for a change. The log jam preventing 
economical transportation has been bro- 
ken at long last and accommodations for 
this summer can still be had. 

Student members of Youth Argosy 
and affiliated organizations will go 
abroad this summer on a larger scale 
than ever before. The student organiza- 
tions affiliated with Youth Argosy that 
will make these trips have sprung up in- 
dependently on many campuses. Some 
are student cooperatives; some are led 
by professors; a few of these have en- 
gaged the services of travel agents to 
plan itineraries and secure foreign ac- 
commodations for them. 

Smith Founds Organization 

Monroe Smith founded Youth Argosy 
many months ago in the hope that this 
cooperative, non- profit organization 
would benefit student travelers of all 
ages with limited funds to secure at 
least a share of the limited transporta- 
tion available. The success of this new 
organization was very limited at first 
and Youth Argosy now, with the more 
than 4,000 accommodations secured, still 
feels it has accomplished only part of 
the job it set out to do. 

Youth Argosy has arranged for air 
transport in Douglas four-engined Sky- 
masters to take students to Europe in 
June and July. The same planes will 
bring back Displaced Persons from the 
crowded camps of Europe to be admit- 
ted to the United States. In the fall, 
the student groups will return by ship, 
Cunard Line vessels, outfitted in "aus- 
terity" fashion. 

Flights Originate From Many Points 

The cost per passenger for all of this 
is at the figure of J340 per individual 
for the round trip and the complete i 
per individual comes to less than $1500. 
These flights will originate from Brad- 
ley Field, Windsor Locks, Conn. Flights 
will travel west to Denver, San Fran- 
cisco, Honolulu, Midway. Manila. Tokyo, 
Shanghai. Hong Kong, Bangkok, Ran- 
^■•on, Calcutta, Bombay and Karachi; 
then into the Middle East for landings 
and tours at Teheran, Bagdad, Israel, 
Cairo and Athens. From there, at a 
more leisurely pace, the trip will be 
continued to cover the cities of Europe — 
Rome. Geneva, Paris, Munich, Copen- 
hagen and others will be visited.

Purchase Card Plan 
Aids Cost of Living 

The purchase card system, an inter- 
collegiate plan to reduce the student's 
cost of living, has been approved for 
the Westwood area. The purchase card, 
sold by a member or non-member NSA 
college to any of its students for one 
dollar, will entitle the student to sales 
discounts at cooperating enterprises in 
his own community or in any other 
community throughout the United States 
in which the plan has been put into 

Through the college committee, the 
college will retain 65% of all receipts 
on the dollar purchase card; 35 r 'r is 
submitted to the national office, which 
in turn will disburse 15% of its amount 
to the regional office. 

This plan is being put into effect in 
many areas of different regions. Mount 
St. Mary's College is included in the 
Westwood Area with U.C.L.A. and Mary- 
mount College. Freshman Beverly Hal- 
pin has been serving as chairman of the 
plan for this area. 

Purchase cards will go on sale May 
23 to Mount students and may be used 
until Nov. 1. At that time, contracts 
with the different enterprises will have 
to be renewed. A special seal displayed 
in store windows will indicate the shops 
and stores cooperating with the purchase 
card plan. 

Among those in Westwood area are 
Rene Sports, Champion Cleaners, a local 
shoe shop, and the Campus Camera Shop, 
which is offering a 10% to 157* discount 
depending on the type of developing.

Doctor Stanton Joins 
Advisory Board for 
Local Region of NSA 

Doctor Mary Stanton, head of the de- 
partment of Social Welfare at Mount 
St. Mary's was elected to the Advisory 
Board of the Califomia-Nevada-Hawaii 
region of NSA. Dr. Stanton was chosen 
at the recent NSA regional convention

The statement on Academic Freedom 
opposes the tendency of educational in-

established principles of academic free-

circumstances" as unjust to faculty and 

Furthermore, the statement recognizes 
Communism as subversive to democracy, 
but with the Association of American 
University Professors supports profes-

teachers' freedom of publication of re- 
search results.

Moreover, the statement emphasizes 
free classroom discussion, but rest i

subject. It states the right of the teacher 
to be free from institutional censorship 
when speaking as a citizen, and bases 
faculty employment on fulfillment of the 
requirements of the position. Limit:*

Senior Plans Summer 
Journey to Europe 

Senior Lois O'Connell will spend the 
summer touring Europe with her parents, 
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph O'Connell. Leaving 
New York harbor July 27, they will 
travel with the Bishop of New Mexico's 
37-day tour through France, Italy, Eng- 
land, and Ireland. They will visit Le 
Havre, Paris, Lisieux, Versailles, the 
Grotto at Lourdes, Nice, Florence, the 
shrine at Assisi, and will climax this 
part of their trip with a trip to the 
Vatican City. Their next stop will bo 
London. After trying to achieve that 
proper clipped accent, they will fly to 
Ireland to spend a week visiting rela- 
tives in Galway County. From Ireland 
they plan to fly home. 

The trip to Europe by boat takes 
seven days. Lois, who has never traveled 
on an ocean liner, is looking forward 
to the experience. 

The European tour was a surprise to 
Lois who first learned about it while she 
was home in Phoenix during the Easter 
holidays. Her parents are making all 
the plans. Lois is using her spare time 
brushing up on her French. 

Students Air Views On 
Current N.S.A. Art Exhibit 

Crossing the campus, I overheard a 
group of my fellow classmates discussing 
the NSA student art exhibit which was 
on display in the mezzanine gallery of 
the library. 

"I think it was unique," Dee Bursk 
said with a broad smile. 

"Yes," agreed Mary Lou Hart, "and 
I challenge anyone to figure out the 
'Study in Pen and Ink'; it certainly in- 
trigued me." 

Pat Cummings chimed in with, "Some 
of the pieces were really stimulating, 
but others just weren't worth looking 

"Well, except for the colors, on the 
whole I didn't care for the exhibit," was 
Phyllis Tuckish's remark. 

From these varied comments I think 
you gather that if you missed this ex- 
hibit of student art work from all over 
the nation, you really missed something. 
Next time watch the bulletin board!

New Teachers And Course 
Scheduled For Fall Term 

Highlighting the year 1949-50 will be 
the Department of Cancer Research at 
the Mount which will offer for the first 
time a major in this subject. In addi- 
tion to this already much publicized 
course, the Mount will again feature, but 
in broader terms, music as a major sub- 
ject in which degrees of Bachelor of 
Arts or Bachelor of Music may be ob- 
tained. The Department of Music will 
have on its staff, in addition to the well- 
known Mr. Will Garroway, Eddison von 
Ottenfeld, and the Very Reverend Rob- 
ert Brennan. 

The Department of Art also finds it- 
self expanding under the administration 
of Clyde L. Kelly and Sister Ignatia. 
Still-life painting, ceramics, and figure 
sketching will be featured. Stimulating 
leading to a major in the Department of 
Social Welfare will once more be given, 
and Dr. Stanton will again head the De- 
partment. An additional course in an- 
thropology will be offered in the fall 
with Sister Agnes Bernard conducting.

Underclassmen Seek 
Summer Jobs and Fun 

Summer plans are almost as much in 
discussion as impending exams! 

Proximity renders the latter more 
important at the moment, but subcon- 
sciously every Mount lass is concerned 
with the prospects of summer activity. 

Mary Lou Jandro plans to "rough it'" 
this summer, in true western style. 
She'll become a rancher, for those three 
months, and will be seen only in levi's. 
Joan McNulty is reversing the situation. 
She will attend the Immaculate Heart 
College summer session. After that, Joan 
and her family are moving to a sheep 
ranch in Ukiah, California. 

Those who plan to make their own in 
the business world include Mary Alice 
Connors and Barbara Galen. Mac hopes 
for a position in San Diego. Barbara and 
her sister, Ruth, will return to Missoula, 
Montana where Barbara will take care 
of the forestry service. Spud hasn't 
commented on her ambitions for employ- 
ment this summer. 

Summer school seems to lie lining a 
number of underclassmen. Florence Ty- 
ree, Pat Catalyne, and Julia and Gabriela 
Marciacque will spend a few more weeks 
studying at the Mount. Ruby Mar Bun- 
yard will spend two weeks studying — 
liming. She won the scholarship at 
a summer aquatic school in connection 
with the Red Cross. Joyce Gisler will 
be studying at the Mount, but first she 
will be maid-of-honor at the wedding of 
former Mount student, Mary Eleanor 

The urge to travel has hit Deenie 
Ibbetson; she hopes for a trip to New 
York. Of necessity Jeanne Kingston and 
Janie Donnelly are driving to Minne- 
sota, and home. Anita Tubay and Eleanor 
Kelliher will attend summer session be- 
fore leaving for Chicago. 

Donning leis this summer will be Anne 
Wong, Louella Lum, Cynthia Luke, Mari- 
lyn Yee, and Bernadette Gouveia. All 
will spend the vacation in Hawaii 

Whether lying on a beach or pursuing 
their formal education, all Mount 

is are planning an activity-packed 
ation between now and September 12

Graduates to Utilize College Studies . . . 

Seniors Tell Why They Chose Their Majors; 
Teaching, Science, Bus. Ad., Music Named • 

This being the last poll of the year, we decided to ask some of our departing 
seniors why they chose their major. 

Marillyn Wetzel: "Education is a large and necessary field for Catholic Action. 

When teaching, you are training the mind which is actually the, soul. By being 

around and working with children I will be able to make a more successful mother." 

Nat Rohe: "I went into teaching be- 

cause it is truly worthwhile and gives 
me something substantial to work on. 
What could be better than to influence 
the generation of tomorrow with the 
education we have received at the Mount! 
Teaching is also good practical security 
for the future and an excellent prepara- 
tion for marriage." 

Mary Jensch: "The idea of becoming 
a teacher first came from the example 
of my own teachers. Next I began to 
realize that teaching is the greatest 
profession with advantages 'now and 

Dolly Bowler: "I felt that I could do 
the most good in bacteriology. Working 
in a medical laboratory is a corporal 
work of mercy which I will be doing 
eight hours a day." 

Ellen Garrecht: "I majored in bacteri- 
ology because besides being tremendous- 
ly interesting in itself it would be the 
greatest help to me in being a good 
doctor, and I think that the medical pro-

in life." 

Pat Spain: "I like to take things apart 
in order to see how they are made. I 
left chemistry for a while and tried 
varied subjects but found chemistry the 
most interesting." 

Peggy McLoone: "Dietetics is one way 
in which I, as an individual, by working 
in a public health clinic, could help the 
underprivileged people. That is why I 
chose it as my major." 

Azilda Charbonneau: "I believe home 
economics is a practical profession as 
well as a way for gaining knowledge for 
home making." 

Estelle Zehngebot: "I feel that I can 
do the most good in zoology by instruct- 
ing people and thus making them appre- 
ciate the subject as I do in a Catholic 

I stella Kivera: "Since in Mexico a 
number of business jobs are opened to 
people who speak both English and Span- 
ish, I took up business administration." 

Olga Stadhagen: "There are wonder- 
lul opportunities for persons speaking 
two languages, thus I took business as 
my major, but above all because I like 
it very much." 

Adelaide Spuhler: "I like people and 
in social welfare I can meet people and 
help them. In social welfare I can carry 
out Christ's words 'Whatever you do to 
these, the least of My brethren, you do 
also unto Me'." 

Mary Dolores Burkloy: "I majored in 
French because having studied it in high 
school I grew to love the language and 
the literature. I hope to teach others to 
have also a deep appreciation for French 
culture and civilization." 

Margie KIcrs: "Music has been my 
background from birth. Because of such 
influence I wouldn't think of anything 
else to major in but muBic."

Know Your Pool . . . 

Workmen Tell 'All' 
As Dream Comes True 

Many students are observing curiously 
everyday the gradual completion of the 
new Mount swimming pool. No doubt 
there must be questions in their minds as 
they watch the workmen wielding 
strange implements and materials and 
see strange apparatuses lying on the 
ground nearby. 

I went to watch the men one day but 
unfortunately there were only two at 
work. The carpenters and plumbers must 
have feared the dark clouds above which 
were certain to bring rain in a few 
minutes. "There ain't going to be the two 
of us guys up here much longer either 
if the weather keeps up," one workman 
said. I, however, zipped up my sturdy 
army jacket, hoped for the success of 
my new Toni, and stood determined to 
get a story for The View. 

The pool under construction is 75 feet 
by 35 feet, a very large bucket of water 
for the Mount's 300 girls. Depths range 
from 3 feet for beginners to 10 feet, 
where divers can practice safely from 
1 meter and 3 meter diving boards. 

The bottom of the pool will be plas- 
tered with white cement meeting with 
the strip of blue tile lining the sides. 
It is merely the reflection of the blue 
tile and the color of the sky that makes 
the bottom seem blue and the water 
even bluer. 

The two large holes along the width 
of the pool are insertions for the lights, 
which almost seem to indicate — night 

The water in the pool will be 
lated through a filter system. The tank- 
like apparatuses on the left side near 
the lower tennis court contain water 
which will be forced out by an electrii 
pump and kept in constant movement 
through a drain pipe at the 
leading back to the tanks. In this way, 
the pool will not have to be drained out 
and refilled. 

A vacuum system will be employed for 
cleaning out the pool. Operating from 
above the surface ot the water, a \onn- 
hoscd vacuum can be extended into 
Water, moving back and forth and func- 
tioning in the same manner as an oi 
nary vacuum cleaner. A net will be 
to skim the surface for leaves an 
floating on the water.

WAA Activities 
For Fall Semester 

Yvonne Mazy, newly elected W.A.A. 
president, hails from Alhambra, "the 
friendly city." Yvonne graduated from 
Catholic Girls High School where she 
was Lettergirl President. She has been 
very active in sports at the Mount, as 
a member of the school varsity and a 
tennis instructor. 

Our Lady of Peace, San Diego, claims 
sophomore and vice president of the 
W.A.A., Rita Custado, as an alumna. 
Rita held the offices of vice president 
and treasurer of the GA.A. at O.L.P. 
and was treasurer of the W.A.A. this 

Incoming secretary of the W.A.A. for 
1949-50 is Margaret Ann Czeuleger, 
alumna of Saint Mary's Academy and 
a resident of the city of Redondo Beach. 
Margaret Ann has been representative 
of the Mount as a tennis player in the 
Ojai Tournament, and has also partici- 
pated in the Southern California Tourna- 
ment, held at the Los Angeles tennis 
Club, and the Arizona State Tournament. 
She has many cups showing her prowess 
in tennis. 

Santa Barbara Catholic High School 
gave to the Mount as W.A.A. treasurer, 
Margie Davy. Margie was vice president 
of the G.A.A. in her senior year, which 
happened to be the first year the G.A.A. 
was established at S.B.C.H. She was also 
a member of the school varsity for all 
four of her years in high school, "in all 
available sports." 

Field Day to Feature 
Dedication of Pool 

Field Day has been postponed until 
June 2 this year so that the swimming 
pool can be used. As originally sched- 
uled, the activities will begin with a 
general assembly in the Little Theater. 
Although the new time schedule has 
not been set, the activities will include 
the opening and dedication ceremonies 
of the pool, the traditional relay and 
team races and volleyball games. All 
points for the activities will be calculated 
on a class basis. No individual points 
will be kept. For the team races 15, 
10 and 5 points will be awarded to 1st, 
2nd, and 3rd place respectively and for 
individual events 5, 3, and 1 points will 
be awarded. Even the volleyball game 
will be between classes: Sophomores vs. 
Freshmen and Seniors vs. Juniors, with 
the winners of each playing another 
game. A victory trophy will be awarded 
to the winning class at the entertain- 
ment following the Student Council din- 
ner. Each class is preparing talent for 
the big entertainment. Beginning this 
year there will be a perpetual trophy. 

Ellen Murphy, who is chairman of 
the queen campaign, will emcee all the 
events of the day. Student officials for 
the activities will be Marie Martinez, 
head official; Mary O'Brien, starter; 
Grace Bohanon, Cathy Edwards and 
Jean Russell, judges; Mary Lou O'Con- 
nor and Evelyn Ishida, checkers; Joella 
Hardeman, runner, and Connie Nichols, 
equipment manager. 

Artists And Happy People 
Comprise 'Pilgrim's Inn' 

Your reaction to Green Dolphin Street 
is not necessarily an indication of how 
you will like Elizabeth Goudge's most 
recent novel, Pilgrim's Inn. In the latter 
as in the former Miss Goudge is con- 
cerned with an apparently unhappy mar- 
riage, unrequited love, and two heroines 
— both well drawn. The choice of re- 
maining married to her husband or leav- 
ing him for another man stirs up con- 
siderable conflict in Nadine's heart A 
benevolent old house, an enchanted place 
in the woods, and a wise artist aid her 
in making her decision. 

Miss Goudge's style has the easy flow 
of the river featured in her story. One 
can drift downstream and meet some of 
the friendliest characters in contempo- 
rary fiction. The author states "Pilgrim's 
Inn has a happy ending because I love 
much to let them be 
unhappy for long." That remark explains 
a major fault of the book — a tendency to 
be overly sentimental. 

The fragrant countryside, the sunlit 
woods, the exciting, peaceful atmosphere 
steal from the pages and become tan- 
gible. You feel clean, warm, and con- 
tented. Try it with apples and a roaring 
some cold night

Maisie Ward Tells Efforts 
To Re-Christianize France 

During a recent visit to France Maisie 
Ward, co-founder of the publishing house 
of Sheed & Ward, studied at first hand 
the new movements for re-Christianizing 
that country. Her new book, France Pa- 
gan ? is the account of the man who is 
the inspiration of the mission among the 
workers of France — Abbe Gadin. The 
first part is the biography of the priest 
written in the penetrating portraiture 
style of Miss Ward's Young Mr. New- 
man. The second is her edited transla- 
tion of Abbe Gadin's France, Pays de 
Mission, a report on conditions written 
at the request of Cardinal Suhard. 

In the discussion of paganism in the 
French proletariat, the plan of attack is 
one of vigorous action. "We must amaze 
them, we must give them shocks. . . 
To manifest love is to startle." The pic- 
ture painted of the special problems fac- 
ing those priests who are attempting the 
work of conversion and re-conversion 
among the workers startles one. It is 
hard to believe that the soul of France 
is being attacked from without by pa- 
gan forces in the press, the radio, and 
the cinema and from within by luke- 
warmness and formality. 

Missionaries convert easily, almost too 
easily, members of the French proletari- 
ate. Enthusiasm and love of God always 
found in new Catholics, is frequently dif- 
ficult or impossible to harness. Brin 
in Catholicism is comparatively easy: 
driving out paganism and materialism is 
relatively hard. 

Maisie Ward faithfully catches thi 
spirit of the man who is the inspiration 
of the movement in her sketch and 
translation. Of the third section of the 
book she says, it ". . . may be called a 
documentary . . . While reading it you 
must see in imagination a background of 
the France of at least the last hundred 
years: continually encroaching pagan- 
ism, a Catholicism tied to all appear- 
ances to the old regime, a Catholicism 
losing bit by bit its property, its support 
from the State, its authority over edu- 
cation, its religious orders perhap

chanted the phrase used by all seniors, 
"I'll be glad when this is all over." I'm 
not so sure. An empty feeling closes in 
about you when you think that soon you 
will be down there with the masses 
rushing and roaring about in the mad 
struggle of civilization. No more morn- 
ing visits in the chapel with the sun 
making patterns through the stained 
glass. No more glorious views of the 
ocean and the exciting outline of Cata- 
lina. No more of the exhilarating smell 
of the chaparral and the trees and the 
flowers. Gone will be the peace of the 
library and the magic of the sky and the 
trees outlined against the windows. The 
song of the birds will be a distant mem- 
ory. The rustle and the clink of the Sis- 
ters' rosaries as they walk down the hall 
will be lost in other noises. The magic 
of watching the hills change vestments 
for the seasons will be closed to us. Yes, 
we leave many beautiful things behind 
and take with us memories, poignant 
ones. The point I wish to make is this — 
Enjoy each moment here while you have 
it. Absorb the beauty of the Mount. 
Don't lose a precious drop. For the time 
of leaving pounces on you suddenly. 
Four years flash by and a different life 
ahead. Enjoy these years and carry 
them as a warm memory with you on 
your journey through life.

By Adelaide Spuhler 

Not so many years ago I, as a gangling, exuberant freshman, became a scribe 
for The \ ii-\\ . I hardly realized at the time how often in the next few years I would 
be racing deadlines, meeting the editor's scowls and 'grins of approbation, sitting in 
an empty room with an equally empty head dreaming up news, tearing my hair foi 
names, and bemoaning my fate. Those were gay times, almost gone now. How often 
these last few weeks have we seniors 

Dolores Cobb looks fondly at her jeep 
and smiles at the prospect of a summer 
spinning around in it. Margie Biggs has 
a ring, and a right sparkling gadget it is. 
John has a new car, and the entire situ- 
ation is perfect. The element missing is 
the date, which Margie sets as "some- 
time in a year." Julia Horimoto hopes 
to do social work at Maryknoll this sum- 
mer. Pauline Chang is off to summer 
school at Fordham. Travelling farther 
east and north to Quebec and La 
University is Mary Dolores Buckley. 
Lillian Ohta is off for Minneapolis and 
her sister's wedding. Peggy McLoone is 
just going to "rest for the summer, 
honey," and then start her internship in 
dietetics at Sawtelle. 


Mary Ishida will work at Queen's to 
get that necessary experience for nurs- 
ing. Gloria Hayes is going to teach piano 
and cello and take care of George v Es- 
telle Zehngebot also is going to concen- 
trate on relaxing so she can gather up 
the strength to return for a fifth year 
in education. Jeanne Leibert looks long- 
ingly at her piano and the prospect 
playing it for as many hours as she de- 
sires. She'll be a concert pianist \ i

Compton Wins Playday 
At La Verne College 

The WAA of La Verne College acted 
as host to four other colleges in a vol- 
leyball playday. In the .first round of 
play the Mount defeated La Verne's first 
team 33-1, and in the second game scored 
another victory over La Verne by 
swamping their team 35-0. 

The first game between Compton and] 
the Mount proved to be a test of skill 
in "killing"; Compton, at the end of the 
fifteen minute playing time was ahead 
11-10. In spite of the defeat the Mount 
managed to overcome Mt. San Antonio 
25-5 and Pepperdine 19-7. 

After a picnic lunch in the park oppo-j 
site the College, Compton and the MountJ 
played the final game to determine the! 
winner of the playday. Compton edged 
out the Mount 15-12. 

Participants in the games included] 
Mary Ellen Likins, Barbara O'Callaghan,' 
Yvonne Mazy, Eleanor Kelliher, Gloria 
Putman, Lupita Bernstein, Marion Clark, 
Helen Kemper, and Angela McDonald.
